We'll start the tour at the city center from where we’ll walk to a quirky boutique led by 4 women. Then we are off to home decoration and toys atelier/shop famous for its magical window display. The owner will meet us there with a cup of tea and show us how she makes her beautiful toys. After that, we'll visit a charming atelier shared by several jewelry and fashion accessories designers. Their personal styles and artsy dispositions are very inspirational as well and our hostess will guide us through their work. After that, a 10 minute walk to Ilica street will bring us to the atelier of an interesting ceramics artist and her fellow artists. She'll show us how she does her artwork, we’ll have a chat with her and some refreshments to round up the tour. Sometimes (when she is in town), a celebrity singer and artist will open the doors to her atelier where she paints and makes her fabulous jewelry!

I would be delighted to share with you my favorite arts & crafts spots in the center of the city (toys and decorations atelier/shop, jewelry and fashion atelier and the ceramics atelier), as well as introduce you the fantastic and talented people who make really gorgeous stuff. Croatian art, craft and design scene is blooming at the moment and to experience this kind of creativity is an inspiration by itself.
