Hello, My name is Mark Tudose and few years ago I have start "Art & Crafts" in Sighisoara. At first I have made a local artist gallery with handmade products around Sighisoara. I do the wood part in the gallery. In time we developed more opening a museum section for our gallery with pieces made of wood about 50 years ago. This year is for the first time when we will open this museum part for our customers. So, feel free to visit us and let me know your opinion. I really think that the only way for a craft it comes with the story behind. I hope you will like our stories.

Went there with my fiancé for a quick visit. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner. He explained the shops philosophy and some of the stories behind the products. It is gratifying to see that there are businesses that promote Romanian traditions.

Extraordinary establishment, full of Romanian traditional handmade souvenirs. The location is a bit hard to find, but once inside you enter in another world.

Here you can go and see craftsmen at work as well as buying gifts in leather, pottery, painted wood. A very friendly Hungarian speaking Roumanian who spoke excellent English demonstrated to me pain ting on wood.
