For instance, people will be able to assist the locals in constructing terracotta ovens, long grass rooftops or even the traditional longbows.
No prior experience is required and all the process is supervised by a park employee who is there to ensure that everyone manages to have a constructive and fun time when learning the crafts from the locals, while at the same time still maintain a safety margin, since most techniques will entail the use of specialized tools that necessitate years of experience.

The whole program is held over the course of an entire week, each day having a different activity and specific craftsmanship skill offered each day. Although this represents a condensed course, which doesn’t wish to be a thorough training by all means, the course will be a wonderful experience for all those who attend it.
Even more, all those who complete the 7-day training program, will have their participation acknowledged and will receive a certificate of completion for the traditional craftsmanship course.
