Skilled craftsmen produce an array of brilliant copper items from tiny pots you can tie on a business card to entire decorative door coverings! Visitors are welcome to enter the workshops, often located in the rear of sales rooms, where the artists will gladly explain the process and may even hand you the hammer to give it a try!
