Celebrating Hungary's folk tradition

The Association of Hungarian Folk Artists (Népművészeti Egyesületek Szövetsége, or AHFA/NESZ) is a non-governmental organisation which brings together over 50 folk associations, craft workshops and art houses from across Hungary. For more than three decades it has worked with its members and partners to preserve and promote the country's diverse heritage crafts. The association's youth training programmes aim to inspire the next generation in the art and business of crafts, and its annual Festival of Folk Arts at Buda Castle showcases the work of the masters, attracting some 70,000 visitors. The association also have a folk art shop, MESTERPORTA, which sells traditional goods all year round.
