The primary objectives of the Section are to preserve and promote the values of traditional Hungarian folk art and artisanship and to co-ordinate those engaged in folk art. The Handicrafts Section of the Hungarian Heritage House therefore organizes educational programs for handicraft teachers and co-ordinates folk artisan training programs countrywide.
The folk handicrafts instructors' training course has been running for ten years and includes branches of folk art such as rug weaving, pottery, leatherwork, lace-making, basket weaving, rush work, straw work and making corn husk objects. The course gives a certificate in instructing folk handicraft activities at playhouses and teaching a chosen folk craft both in and out of school curriculums.
There are also courses for the further education of teachers of folk arts. The "Master course" and the "Teacher of teachers" course cover the areas of embroidery, weaving, leatherwork and instructing folk handicraft workshops.
Master courses, conferences and field trips are available for professionals and masters of folk handicrafts.
The Handicrafts Section runs several competitions, organizes exhibitions, edits and publishes books for students and artisans in the Carpathian Basin.
