Folk Artists Online –

Many folk artists sell their works mainly during such events as fairs and expos. The current pandemic situation has limited personal contact with the artisans and the chance to see and choose their works first-hand. That’s why Workshops of Culture in Lublin and The Jagiellonian Fair have launched the initiative #FindTheArtisan. Let’s stay in touch with folk artists, order their wares to support them, and surround ourselves with beautiful folk arts and crafts!

Are you travelling? Check whether you can find the artists of The Jagiellonian Fair in the area where you’re going. Perhaps you’ll find a workshop near you? We have created this virtual map to help you locate our artists. 

There are several ways in which you can use the map.

Find geographical locations. It works just like Google Maps, so you can zoom in, zoom out and move around with your finger. You can also type your destination’s name to search for it and check if there are any artists in the area. To use the search engine, click “enlarge/show a bigger map”  (the icon in the top-right corner) and when the full view loads, you will find the search bar in the menu on the left.

If you know the name of the artisan, you can also find them using the magnifying glass.

We have sorted the name according to craft categories. You can find the list of all crafts in the drop-down menu in the map’s top-left corner. You can check all categories of interest and hide others to display only the things you want to find. To make things easier, each category has an icon in a different colour.

Remember that we’re not providing exact addresses. The pins do not indicate the artists’ homes. The map only shows the town/city where the artisan works. For more details, get in touch with the artist.
