Craft Camp brings together people near and far interested in handicraft
This year’s Craft Camp takes place – for the third time – during 9-15 July in Olustvere, Estonia. More than 40 people from 13 different countries come together to learn new skills in a variety of handicraft workshops. The workshops introduce Estonian handicraft by giving an overview of traditional handicraft techniques from Estonia and teach the modern usage of those techniques.
