#3 of 10 in Classes in Crete
The workshop at The Bronze produces bronze statues and other items using methods ancient Minoans utilized to create their artwork. A visit to this shop is a chance to see artisans at work and learn something about smelting techniques. In addition, you can purchase unique souvenirs here, or place a special order. The shop's decorative items--small figures of animals, shields, helmets, bracelets, and others--can make an outstanding gift for someone you love. They also work well as mementos of your trip, and will look great on your mantelpiece or bookshelf. To visit The Bronze on your trip to Hersonissos, use our Hersonissos road trip tool .

    An outstanding metal artifacts work. Very professional. Mr Kelesis delivers in time and his artifacts combine a unique talent and thousands of years of Cretan art development. Well done Yanis.  more »

    Yannis welcomed us warmly with drinks and rolls filled with spinach and a visit to his Studio. There is something for every taste: Classic and modern. We passed a command for a particular object, he worked on a simple drawing and we got it the next day, we were thrilled! Polite Evkaristo Yannis! Jasu!

    We discovered the Yannis shop by chance, as we walk... Yannis and Michel welcomed us warmly (Raki, cakes and good mood) we had the chance to attend a demonstration, Yassin is a passionate and exciting artist! We learned a lot, laughed a lot! It is certainly our most beautiful meeting of Crete... Don't leave without going there!
