Xeirotexnika 2018 report
Xeirotexnika was once more declared as the biggest handicraft and diy festival in Greece!
Xeirotexnika took place for the second time at Helexpo Maroussi, in a modern and spacious area which fulfilled every single need. As in every year, Xeirotexnika visitors encountered:
- the Market for handicraft tools and materials,
- the Presentation Hall where new materials and techniques were made known
- the Kids Room where our little friends made their own crafts using Matalonproducts,
- the Knitting Corner where constant knitting demonstrations took place,
- the Fine Crafts Showroom where various artists created right before our eyes,
- the Stamperia kiosk coming with constant seminars conducted by teachers from abroad
- and of course the Craft Rooms, which this year, reached the record number of 9 rooms where 150 unique seminars came to reality!
More specificaly, the Craft Rooms were the following:
- Bosch Dremel Craft Room
- edding Craft Room
- The Paper Place Craft Room
- Annie Sloan Craft Room
- SKAG Deco Craft Room
- Celebration Craft Room
- Fashion Accessories Craft Room
- Deco Craft Room
- Sugar & Cake Craft Room
For the first time, an online pre-registration was available. This particular feature ensured that people would find a spot on their preffered seminar and also vanished long cues for the Craft Rooms box office.
Apart from our own rooms, exhibitors kept on demonstrating their skills at their respective kiosks, and therefore surprising visitors constantly! We got to get in touch with new materials and techniques, we learned how to make Christmas crafts along with wedding and baptism decorations, always next to the most skilful instructors!
This year, we welcomed a great number of old and new participants. People who through their materials and knowledge, offered everyone a feeling of renewal and creativity! Ftiaxto.gr was of course by our side, taking an even more active role this year, by picking and organising all the 9 Craft Rooms’ seminars!
We had a great time again this year and we renew our date for 2019!
