Tõstamaa Craft Centre
is located in Tõstamaa parish – a pictoresque area in southwestern Estonia bordered by the Baltic Sea. The inhabitants of the local community have always valued their dual identity inherited from their peasant and sailor ancestors. Handicraft made in the centre is also inspired by rural and maritime traditions. Old techniques and unique patterns are kept alive and new styles are often invented to give classic elements a modern twist.
Tõstamaa Craft Centre is open throughout the year and offers weekly workshops both for children and adults. They include basic handicraft principles, making Estonian folk costumes and ceramics as well as crafting for business purposes.
On September 16, 2020, the President of the Republic of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid visited the Tõstamaa Handicraft Center. It will be remembered as the sunny and warm day.
