Santa’s Workshop is back!
Make sure you put the Ta’ Dbieġi Artisan Village in Gozo on your itinerary for a day full of fun and activities for the whole family, on Saturday, December 9th between 10:00h and 17:00h.
Artisans based at the village will welcome you at their workshops, giving you the opportunity to view a variety of local products being created, and stock up on your Christmas gifts!
The village will also be buzzing with games, activities, music, and food, including:
SANTA’S WORKSHOP EXPRESS – FULLY BOOKED
Get to the Ta’ Dbieġi Artisan Village in style aboard the Santa’s Workshop Express, a trackless train ride departing from the Victoria Train Station at the Victoria Bus Terminus.
There will be two return trips during the day, both free of charge: the morning one will depart from Victoria at 10:00h, and leave the Ta’ Dbieġi Artisan Village at noon; while the afternoon ride will depart at 14:30h and have a return at 16:30h.
The train rides a first come first served basis, so it is highly recommended to book your ticket here so as not to be disappointed, as spaces are limited.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure you arrive in time to board the train, as train leaves exactly on time and failure to show up on time could lead to forfeiture of your booking. Please ensure that you present your ticket before boarding. Boarding cannot be guaranteed without a ticket.
GET CREATIVE AND TRY A FILIGREE WORKSHOP
If you have always found yourself curious about traditional Maltese filigree and the technique used to make the delicate jewellery and items we see, book yourself a workshop with George Farrugia, our Master Artisan and winner of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Premju Ġieh l-Artiġjanat Malti.
George will take you through the whole process and guide you in making your own pendant, which would make a great Christmas gift!
Workshop participation costs €30 per person, including the cost to cover all materials used in the workshop. There are three options available, each with a duration of one hour, starting at 11:00h, 13:00h, and 15:00h. Register here to book your preferred slot.
