This popular arts and crafts resource center is ideal if you need to scratch a creative itch. You'll find supplies and the space to make a design of your own – from buttons to knitted scarves – or you can just pick up something someone else has already labored over and tell people back home you made it yourself. Check ahead for workshops that include screen printing and soap making.

Blim also stages regular craft markets throughout the year at sites around the city, which are a great way to meet local artisans and pick up unique souvenirs. Check the website for event announcements, and also ask about other craft fairs around the city: these guys will point you in the right direction.
