The research in Debar area conducted the conclusion that a comprehensive documentation of traditional handcraft could be the base to build up the project. A visit at the National Museum of Macedonia gave input for a catalogue of traditional handcraft, including patterns, colors, materials and techniques mainly in the field of textiles.

With the aim of motivating people to express their own creativity and the interest for re-interpretation of traditional textile products, a concept for a workshop and meeting point has been developed. In the workshop people can experience printing and weaving, as well as exchange ideas and buy material or literature about Macedonian handcraft. Two main DIY-products were offered: a kit with a weaving frame and a box with stamps for printing traditional patterns.
