Unique experience
Jul 2018 • Friends
I have been to Sarajevo many times (7 last I counted), but have never encountered an experience like this before. It was great to learn how to use the tools and make different deigns in the copper - and to attempt to do so myself, despite the difficulties haha. Definitely makes you look twice at any handmade coppersmith shops and their intricate designs.

My friend and I had so much fun, and I'm so grateful that Sarajevo Funky Tours presents this unique opportunity. It's an experience I'll remember forever, and I get a nice memento from it too. Kind of like those old kindergarten clay pots you get to make in art class that your mom hangs on to forever - not the prettiest, but definitely the most special. :D

Aside from my own learning process, the workshop itself was held in a fun and relaxed environment and the instructor was very fun and helpful (and patient!), and the tea was delicious!

This was such an incredible and unique experience! Her shop is small, so she can only accommodate small groups. there were 2 of us, and it took about 4 hours to lean how and actually make the designs on our own dzezvas and then she puts the handles on. it was so much fun, something i would absolutely love to do again (we also had the option to make a magnet)!

Dear Katie S, Our Bosnian Traditional Coppersmith workshop is ideal opportunity to learn some traditional Bosnian techniques of shaping and making art of copper design. Workshop takes place at one of the most traditionally preserved stores in the heart of Sarajevo old town. Creating your own magnet or Dzezva (coffee pot) with assistance of one of the most prominent local artisans cant do any wrong. Just great memories and great long lasting souvenirs :) Thank you for being our guest and we hope to see you again one day. All the best. SAFT team
