The Art and Craft Centre (CDUO) Slovenska Bistrica has been operating since 2003. In 2014 it became a social enterprise, the Handicraft Cooperative. It is one of nine handicraft centres that have joined the Consortium of Handicraft Centres of Slovenia network to improve the status of Slovenian artisans.

CDUO Slovenska Bistrica activity is based on the preservation of handicraft cultural heritage, the transfer of traditional handicraft skills to younger generations, and the development and promotion of modern ceramic products. Emphasis is placed on ceramics and pottery. They make various useful and decorative ceramic products and interpretations of old-fashioned pottery ‘From Grandma's Kitchen and Grandpa's Cellar’. Their unique products are handmade, using traditional techniques and technology.
