How they do it? It is impossible without a machine! Is it really possible to do it with your own hands? Can we take it with us as a souvenir?

For those who want something really exceptional, who want to socialize with the locals or spend a day with them, there is a wide variety of activities that will separate your stay in the city from others.

Different programs can be split into the needs and goals that you want to achieve. You can learn traditional techniques in making souvenirs from straw, or using old motives, to create an artwork in wood or stone.

For a more complete experience, we recommend a visit to a craft workshop or an art studio where your hosts and teachers can organize a degustation some of the local cuisine.

Wheat Weaving and Straw Collage

Authentic naive art using the straw technique is unique to Subotica and its region. Decorative woven items and paintings are made from straw.

These amazing golden collages come about through the dance of light and shadows, revealing the countless shades of the straw’s color.

From Fleece to Felt

Learn how to make felt using the wet felting technique.

Wet felting is the process of combining layers of wool roving and/or wool yarns into one flat piece of felt fabric.

Wood carving

An old technique to create wooden guardians to channel spirits and protect people, you can master it, too.

You will begin with basics as how to choose the right piece of wood, how to define the lines of your wood carving to sanding your figures until it is exactly the shape you want.

Naive Painting Oil-on-glass

A native painting technique that has its roots in the countryside.

The technique is referred to as „reverse glass painting“ because when the artist is working on the glass he/she paints the foremost details first.

Mastering the technique can be amusing and intriguing.
