Koumpi – Coffee & crafts

How cool is the idea of crocheting in a cafeteria? Although many consider the old-school craft a lonesome activity for old folks, in this spot you can learn and practice crafting skills while chatting and having fun.

Personally speaking, I am glad I can knit in a place where knitting is not considered odd. Also, the environment is something the owners should brag about. Funky atmosphere, vintage-like shelves full of crafting tools and stylized lamps hanging over the workbenches is all that’s needed.

Plenty of workshops take place in Koumpi on a daily basis. Interested in learning the basics of making cosmetics out of natural ingredients or leather jewellery? Then join a drop-in entry-level course with a small or no fee. If this sounds fun to you, check their monthly timetable on their Facebook page and go for it.

Not in the mood for a long stay? Then try the easy-to-make project kits while enjoying your coffee. My favourite one is the fabric bag. If you don’t feel crafty at all, you can still buy ready-made crafts which are for sale. However, think again before passing up the chance to create beautiful souvenirs at this unique spot with your own hands.
