One of the participants was Adnan Jusic, who is engaged in sheet metal work in Bascarsija. He said that crafts are no longer what they used to be, that they no longer run away from them, and that the practice of crafts is actually very promising.

“The craftsman’s craft is profitable, like all other crafts, and he lives a normal life, a middle-class life, and we need to present this to children. You cannot enrich yourself with crafts, but you can go for a summer vacation, go on a winter trip and drive a normal car,” said Jusic and added that, like most craftsmen, he would very much like to have a student for training in order to study the tin craft.
