While attending the festival, you can choose to simply observe or be an active participant. Certainly, the latter brings more fun, though! Around 800 booths demonstrate how to make decorative items or useful household objects. You can also make woodcarvings, basketwork, pottery, gingerbread, lace, or candles for yourself.
