Artisans in Salento

Today’s experience is a dedicated immersion into local crafts. Our driver will transfer you to the house of a well-renowned artist, to learn the secrets of “pietra leccese” – Lecce stone. You will have the unique opportunity to work on a stone block and give free rein to your creativity following the teachings given by the artist. An open-air craft activity alongside one of the masters of stone-working. The artist opens the doors of his home and atelier and by the end of the workshop you’ll be part of the family as you will enjoy an aperitivo together in his house.
Next you’ll visit the eclectic house, atelier and lab of Isabella, goldsmith and founder of the brand Radice Nomade. You will create a jewelry piece with her expert help and bring it back home.
