Local and Traditional

The Land of Celje is home to a rich tradition of various types of crafts. Works of art produced by today’s artisans are often backed by a national certificate (Art & Craft Slovenia). Hand-made items, which represent a priceless connection with the past, make a great gift or souvenir.

Poleg čebelarjenja in izdelkov iz medu in voska je ohranjena ena najstarejših obrti na Slovenskem, lectarstvo. Zelo razširjeno je zeliščarstvo z ogledi in učnimi delavnicami o uporabi zelišč v zdravilstvu in prehrani. Čeprav je bilo izdelovanje rož iz papirja nekoč zelo razširjeno, je pravo mojstrico danes težko najti.Besides apiculture and honey and wax products, the area is known for one of the oldest crafts in Slovenia, i.e. gingerbread-making. Herbalism is also very popular, and you can take a guided tour or join workshops on the use of herbs in medicine and nutrition. Making paper flowers used to be very popular, but unfortunately today it’s very difficult to find somebody who has truly mastered it. The production of original items of straw and plaiting materials typical of the area of the Dravinja Valley is well-preserved. Pottery, clog-making and cooperage are also still active.

 
The shoemaker’s trade is still lively in Vransko, where the great granddaughter of the founder makes shoes, joining tradition with modern features
 

Ohranjeno je  izdelovanje izvirnih pletarskih izdelkov, značilnih za območje Dravinjske doline. Vztrajajo tudi lončarstvo, coklarstvo in sodarstvo.

 

Čevljarska obrt je še vedno doma na Vranskem, danes pa v delavnici čevlje izdeluje pravnukinja ustanovitelja, ki stavi na prepletanje tradicije in sodobnosti.
