The tradition of craftsmanship in Škofja Loka

The tradition of craftsmanship in Škofja Loka and the wider Gorenjska region is long and rich. Craftsmanship has long been developed in rural areas, as well as in urban areas, where the majority of merchants and crafts people lived. From the mid-15th century the Škofja Loka area was especially marked by its guildsmanship in the economic, cultural and social spheres. In the Middle Ages, arts and crafts contributed to Škofja Loka becoming the administrative and trade-craft centre of the entire Loka territory, as well as being one of the most developed towns in Slovenia (Gorisek 1961: 165).

Today, the link between the rich craftsmanship of the past and creativeness of the present are a real treasure-trove of knowledge, co-operation, development and aesthetics, where you can see exhibitions, purchase handicrafts produced by master craftspeople according to the principles of fair-trade which bear the certificate of top-quality 'Art & Craft Slovenia', or take part in various handicraft workshops and courses, where you can awaken your own creativity and talent. 

If you are lucky, you can also observe some of our master craftspeople at work in the arts and crafts workshop.

We write stories and encourage creativity.
