The Uoginiai Crafts Centre is located at the Kupiškis Ethnographic Museum’s branch in the A. Petrauskas Museum, implementing the 2014–2015 local project “Amatų centro įkūrimas Uoginių kaime, Kupiškio rajone”. Uoginiai village is well-known for its unique museum, founded in 1969 by the ordinary farmer Adomas Petrauskas at his homestead. The museum displays household items, publications, folk sculptures, and stands featuring the photographs and biographies of prominent figures. The homestead’s surroundings are decorated with a collection of field stones and millstones of impressive size and forms, and trees and bushes collected, brought back from the forest, and planted by A. Petrauskas himself continue to flourish. Visitors may put up tents at the museum, and there is a fire ring for campfires.
The purposes of the Uoginiai crafts centre are to bring together traditional crafts and the makers of milk products, to organise events accenting ethnocultural craft traditions and encouraging entrepreneurship among crafts people. The following educational programmes have been prepared: “Bitės liemuo, lino gelmuo” (candle-making), “Medaus kelias” (honey road), “Kalėdų avinėlis” (wool fulling and paper cutting), “Vytelių dailumas” (weaving), “Molio šiluma” (clay), “Sanobinas kupiškėnų vesėlios”, “Pakišuolio gardumas” (bread-baking), “Gyvybės medis” (a certified paper cutting programme).
