Ethnological Workshop

Make a wooden plate, bowl or felt ornament

Try your hand at creating from wood and sheep's wool. In the shelter of the vast forests of the Polhov Gradec hills, home to solitary farms and where cattle and sheep graze on its steep slopes, you can make your own unique wooden plate or bowl from wood. Sense the nature beneath your fingers and take home a beautiful reminder of your visit to the 'Green Playground Amongst Ljubljana's Suburbs'. Or perhaps you'd rather make something from sheep's wool and, in doing so, learn the first and oldest technique of the processing of wool for clothing – felting, which is becoming increasingly popular among craftspeople and designers in Slovenia and throughout the world. Surrender to the joy of creating and become a craftsperson for the day!
