Description

Is there better way to bring a souvenir home, then to make it yourself with local technique, present in Sarajevo over 500 years already now? Would you like to create your own Džezva (pot) and use it at home for years and years to come? Do you want to know the difference between real handmade copper craft and machine made one, that looks quite the same?

Bosnian Coppersmith masterclass is perfect opportunity to peak into traditional copper artisan-handicraft which exists in Sarajevo over 500 years already, and get the real chance to create your own craft, or souvenir. We invite you to join our half day workshop and experience secrets of the best coppersmith artisan out there.

Workshop meeting point is our office either at 10 AM or 2 PM departure times, but the workshop itself is taking place in store over 200 years old with original interior and traditional atmosphere, located in the old town of Sarajevo, 2 minute walk from our office.

Once there we shall have opportunity to meet our host, attend practical history class and conduct two to three hours long workshop, with Bosnian coffee break.

You will have a chance to create your own product and learn story behind it, with experienced guidance of your English speaking host, who will answer all your questions with pleasure and passion. 

At the end of the workshop, you can take your product home with you. It will always remind you on the good times you had in Sarajevo.

Looking back through the history of coppersmith and tinsmith craft, we can realise how important they were in Bosnian tradition. Unfortunately, like many other things, old crafts are on the edge of extinction. The only thing that prevents it from getting totally lost, is love towards handcraft and tradition by small number of those who dedicate themselves to the old crafts.

That is why we have designed coppersmith master-class, with one of the local top class craftsman, in aim to promote, and help out for this art and craft to survive new age. We hope you will be part of it :)
