Celebrating European Artistic Craft Days in the Silversmithing Museum

The Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP), in the framework of this year’s European Artistic Craft Days (28/3-3/4), on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April (at 11:00) organizes the workshop titled “Hands in Unison” for children aged 10-12, accompanied by a parent/caretaker, in the Silversmithing Museum.

Guided by craftswoman Vaso Skopi, participants will have the chance to realize their own artistic creations. Utilizing a variety of metals and the forging technique, they will produce a group creation depicting hands joined together, which denotes the value of human contact, so lacking during the last few years due to the pandemic, and they will also create their own jewels in the shape of hands.

The European Artistic Craft Days (www.journeesdesmetiersdart.fr) have been established as an annual springtime institution in many European countries since 2002. For the 2022 edition, the theme is “Our Hands in Unison”.

PIOP’s activities this year are dedicated to the memory of architect Eleni Pagratiou-Alexaki, who first organized the European Artistic Craft Days in Greece in 2016.

Participation and materials are free of charge.
Registration is required.

For more information and reservations, you can contact the Museum at the telephone number 26510 64065 (daily except Tuesday, 10:00-18:00).

*Due to special circumstances, setting public health as a priority, the activity will take place in compliance with the prescribed measures.
