Local Crafts

Watch a local potter at work and wander round his tree shaded pottery studio, or browse amongst genuine local silk – with a family who grow their own silkworms, weave their own silks to a wide range of traditional and their own modern designs.

See how genuine Cretan knives are made, or get yourself measured up for a real Cretan costume, stivania – knee length boots, sariki – crocheted black scarf.

There’s a hatmaker, local painters, weavers and wood carvers.
