As part of the Womens Week 2018 held in Heraklion, an exhibition of women's handicrafts and crafts products was organized. This is the 18th edition of this event, which is organized by the local Entrepreneurial Women's Association with the support of regional and central authorities.
This event takes place at Eleftherias Square, next to the Archaeological Museum, from July 27 until August 5. Admission to the exhibition area will be possible every day from 10 to 22. The entrance is completely free. It is also worth mentioning that this event is not only an opportunity to get to know the products of the Cretan handicraft of women. According to organizers' announcements, as part of this event, a series of workshops will be organized allowing you to try your hand at activities such as basket-making, jewelery or making traditional fabrics and decorations.
As in the case of other such events, there could also be no events and workshops devoted to traditional dances and Greek cuisine. If in those days you will spend even a moment in Heraklion, in our opinion it is worth to save this event in your memory. All the more if you are looking for the original souvenir from Crete, because many of the exhibited items can be bought directly from the artist.
