Ljubljana – Slovenia

Creative handicraft workshops

Ljubljana Tourism, in collaboration with the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Ljubljana and the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum and five Ljubljana artisans have created a series of eight boutique tourism experiences centered around traditional handicrafts and craftsmanship in Ljubljana. These experiences, such as Repair Your Umbrella, Printing for a Day, Weaving from A to Z, and various pottery and goldsmith workshops, aim to revive old crafts, promote the preservation of cultural heritage, and engage young people in traditional crafts. By catering to the desires of contemporary travelers seeking unique experiences and connections with local cultures, these initiatives significantly enhance Ljubljana’s tourism offerings while providing both local and international visitors with a valuable opportunity to explore and appreciate the rich knowledge, creativity, and heritage of the city’s local artisans.
