image: SCCE welcomes Avinurme Cultural Heritage Centre as a new member SCCE welcomes Avinurme Cultural Heritage Centre as a new member Located in the very heart of Estonia’s forest district, the Avinurme Cultural Heritage Centre preserves the old time wooden and textile handicraft traditions as well as the district’s old time Way of Life.

Traditional carpentry and handicraft still form an essential part of the daily life in the Avinurme area. Surrounded by wide and deep forests - offering scarce possibilities for farming - carpentry and handicraft has since ages back been the main source of income for the people of this part of Estonia.

In addition to a museum (with two permanent exhibitions; A life born from wood and Hunting as a way of life) and a shop, the Centre also offers meeting facilities, food and beverages as well as a number of handicraft, cooking and baking workshops. And, a next door Hostel offers nice and comfortable accommodation facilities.

Combined, the activity options offered make the Centre an excellent venue for team-building, kick-offs and conferences. The wide variety of ready made handicraft goods also offers opportunities for personalized give-aways and presents as well as opportunities for retail on foreign markets.

SCCE’s magazine focus recently visited the Centre and took part in three different workshops; chipwood basket weaving, textile works and cooking (the forests and the nearby Lake Peipsi offers a wide variety of tasty and fresh raw material for the cooking!) - all based on the district’s cultural heritage. A full report will be published in this autumn’s first issue of focus.
