The story of stone on the island of Brač is well known: its life in the houses, streets, and bell towers, the story of its history and tradition, the continuity of masonry and again of the stone itself. However there is another story, of stone and the island of Brač as well, which is something different and more gentle.

It originates from the centuries-old tradition of sculpture, and the stonemasonry activities of the Jakšić family, who developed the working of stone at different levels: from the creation of architectural and decorative features, to the production of unique objects and designs, and the production of souvenirs. The idea was to use everything that could be used from the excess stone left over after being worked on in the stonemasonry workshop. In the works of designer Ida Jakšić, in her souvenirs and and clothing designs, we experience recurring delight in their innovation and uniqueness, and in the way the stone always comes to life. Participate in the creative workshop, unleash your imagination and give the stone some new form of life!
