Leave a cross

A traditional branch of Lithuanian folk art that unites faith with workmanship, cross-crafting (kryždirbystė) has been proclaimed a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. This craft was never taught in special schools. The crosses were – and still are – made out of wood, metal and even stone by self-taught artisans. Learn about cross-crafting traditions and make your own cross that you can leave on the Hill of Crosses among the thousands of symbols of faith left by other people.
