The short story by amateur woodcarver Imrich Goroľ about his way to woodcarving.
Imrich Goroľ comes from the village of Soľ. He worked as a construction worker. He got to the woodcarving by accident. He is a member of the gospel band LOND. During one of their rehearsals in the Pastoral Centre in Čičava he met a woodcarver Milan Krajňák. He showed them various drawings and asked them whether they’d like to learn the craft of woodcarving. In the video he describes the process of making various works.
The story was created in 2013 during the documentation of the craft workshop ROMA ART Čičava. The sheltered workshop was established in 2012, initiated by Martin Mekel.
