The Folk Craftsmen Market is organised annually by the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography at the end of May in the centre of Cluj-Napoca city. By this type of events, the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography wants to revive the traditional crafts of the rural communities, crafts that are going to disappear but surviving by the role of some craftsmen who have still preserved the contact to the tradition. Their products keep the traditional techniques, forms, ornamentation, and by promoting them by the museum the access of contemporary people to the veritable values of the old rural culture is facilitated and the integrations of the artefacts of traditional essence in the contemporary life is stimulated as elements with practical, aesthetic, affective and identity value.
