The Creative-Team is a group of women who help fashion and enrich our local Christmas and Easter markets with their artisanal handicraft. They create and sell Advent and common door wreaths, tasteful decoration and flower arrangements for Easter. The main goal of the Creative-Team is to donate the proceeds to support municipal institutions or social activities in our community.
Everybody who likes to be creative with artisanal handicraft and who wants to contribute to the common good of our village is welcome to join them!
