A short talk of the amateur woodcarver Juraj Goroľ, about his way to woodcarving.
Juraj Goroľ comes from the village Hlinné. He studied at two year vocational school of agriculture. In the video he emphasises the need of higher and sound education. He explaines how he came to work in the sheltered workshop. When he saw the work of the woodcarver Milan Krajňák, he liked it so much he decided to give it a try. He mostly does Christian themed works, mainly the face of Jesus or crucifixes.
The story was made in 2013 while the work of craft workshop ROMA ART Čičava was being documented. The sheltered workshop started in 2012, by the initiative of Martin Mekel.
