Sora river pebbles
felting a soap with master craftswoman Anja Musek
Škofja Loka is home to two rivers - the Selca and Poljana Sora, which join in the town and flow onwards as the Sora river. There are numerous stories connected with the river, among them the story about the Stone Bridge, the story about the Water Man (Povodni mož), and the story by the writer Ivan Tavčar about the sentencing of Agate Schwarzkobler. The everyday lives of Škofja Loka locals has been strongly marked by the river – be it through the development of trades, heavy floods, or pleasant summer days spent at outdoor pools by the river. In this workshop you will felt soap in the shape of Sora river pebbles, which will remind you of the river which flows through our town. The soap in a wool cover can be used for washing hands, face and body and is also very effective at removing dead skin cells.
