Wood Carving in Slovakia

EST Frontier Slovakia will take you to Orava region on a visit to wood carving shops and galleries of well known master wood carvers and sculptors. Wood carving was traditionally done by men who’s main motivation for carving was to make items necessary for daily use (bowls, jugs, spoons, etc). The Gallery of Folk Wood Carving contains more than 50 larger-than-life sculptures by 30 wood carvers from Orava, Liptov, Kysuce and other regions of Slovakia as well as Poland. We’ll also visit a gallery of the late Stefan Sivan – artist wood carver from Orava, where you can see his rich collection of art. Let us also take you on an excursion of the museum of wooden village, where you’ll get familiar with other traditional folk crafts such as pottery craft, blacksmith craft, basket weaving, cow bell making, glass painting and many others.
