Handicrafts are one of the truest reflections of a people's culture. Behind this concept lies not only a chronicle of human undertakings, but also a means of production that has survived the changes of the modern world. Handicrafts tell us a great deal about the history of a place, its customs, its models of organization and its ways of seeing things as they are. Through objects and shapes and methods of working with clay
, etc. we can discover what we were and how we came to be what we are now.
In the Murcia Region, handicrafts are especially interesting as they constitute an industrial and cultural activity that resists falling into oblivion. The Region's craft industry is still alive, today more than ever.
