Cyprus- Crafts and Traditional Skills

Any available placements will show above. Click on the available placement information for more details

Art and craft as a means of social mediation and a mechanism for raising knowledge of sustainability issues is at the heart of this placement. We focus on use of natural and recycled materials and try to help candidates understand environmental, cultural, social and economic sustainability questions and answers (four pillars of sustainability).

Students are taught various crafts and traditional skills of Cyprus.

Work that past students have been involved in include:

  • Wool craft-carding, spinning, weaving and crochet
  • Icon painting
  • Lace workshops
  • Ceramic workshops
  • Mosaic workshops
  • Upcycling vintage clothes


The Turing grant will cover accommodation, food (3 meals a day), return, flights, insurance, transport to site and supervision. Participants will have to make sure they have their EHI or GHI card and budget for personal purchases and excursions.

This project has been funded with support from the Turing scheme, funded by the UK government.
