Katariina Guild

Here you find craftsmen’s workshops and merchandising in a medieval atmosphere.
Visitors can watch artists practise their craft in open studios for leather, textile, glass, jewellery, hats and ceramics.

The guild has been active since 1995. The medieval complex that unites Vene street with Müürivahe street is unique. This has influenced the design of work areas and everyday work arrangements. Eight studios of Katariina Guild are a symbolic bridge between the past and today.
