Best Artisan Handicraft Experiences (By Visit Ljubljana)

14 Nov 2023
Courtesy of our friends over at Visit Ljubljana here's the contenders for the category of Best Artisan Handicraft Experience. This is a new category to the Best of Ljubljana voting this year and it seemed fitting for us to recognise and include some of the amazing artisans in the area who are keeping some of these traditional handicraft methods alive. If you enjoy nothing more than getting hands on and trying things out for yourself then these experiences are a must, from pottery to printing, jewellery making to weaving, these workshops are educational and a whole lot of fun!
