Économusée derives from Québec and is a tourism initiative that enables visitors to watch the artisan at work whilst offering them the opportunity to discover indigenous craft being produced onsite, learn about the history of the craft and the cultural heritage behind the skills.
Économusée is internationally recognised with workshops in Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Sweden, Norway, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
