The final day of our tour will be spent in Veliki Dol, a small settlement in the heart of the Karst region. Members of the Cultural society Kalunca will introduce us to the lacemaking history of Veliki Dol where, between 1909 and 1957, a lace school operated.
They will also talk to us about their efforts for the preservation and development of lacemaking in the village and some very interesting projects which were carried out in recent years with the aim of making lacemaking in the region more popular.
We will also be able to enjoy a lace exhibition, prepared just for the participants of the tour. Later we will admire local craftsmen at work and also try our hand at stone carving. We will finish the day and the tour by meeting local lacemakers and tasting local cuisine.
