    What to Expect
    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 :)

    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

    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,

    Response from Skender_SAFT, Owner at Bosnian Traditional Handicraft, half-day - do it yourself - Coppersmith Workshop
    Responded 31 Aug 2018
    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
