Arts of Survival thematic days


Artisans from Tartu County teach ancestral arts of survival

Inherited Arts of Survival thematic days, which areorganised by NGO Loomemõis, focus on the local knowledge, skills and traditions that have been passed down for generations. From September to May, the series of events invites you to four different places in Vooremaa, where local artisans teach you ancient life skills.

How to cook traditional dishes, craft musical instruments out of natural materials, make scented and stress relief balls, prepare healing ointments and create prehistoric looking ceramics – you will learn all this and more from your hosts through local family traditions in each location. 

Date: 16 September and 11 November 2023,
