This early 20th-century schoolhouse is today a place where visitors can learn about the old trades and craft traditions of the region, and try their own skills at some disappearing arts and techniques. Basically an interactive, hands-on museum, start in the attic - once the teacher's apartment, now a modern audiovisual classroom that transports viewers back in time with a presentation about the ways of working by hand in days gone by. Then participate in one of several workshops where you can learn how to use a pottery wheel and make your own ceramics, write a letter in prewar style using a calligraphy pen and inkpot, or make traditional proziaki - a regional sodabread - from scratch and bake it in a rural oven. Best of all, everything you create goes home with you (if you don't eat it first). With over 400m2, each workshop takes place in a separate part of the building, set up in the style of an early-20th century office, pottery, schoolhouse and bakery, and furnished with period relics. The building also boasts a large and intricate mural on the outside, don't miss it. Lastly, you can pick out some lovely hand-made ceramic souvenirs from their gift shop - most of which have been lovingly created onsite.
