The Team

The initiative has managed to create a close-knit community of active artisans who unite around the idea and participate in the project for the future school. Each of them carefully nurtures their talent and contributes to the preservation of Bulgarian crafts. Students will have the opportunity to acquire or further develop specific skills related to characteristic Bulgarian crafts, guided by the hands of some of the most talented Bulgarian artisans.
