In the past, the economic development of Spiš was largely conditioned by the use of wood, which made it possible to develop existing and open new woodworking and furniture crafts. This school was founded on September 24, 1899 and still operates today. In cooperation with the school, one of the expositions in the reconstructed Manor House Susanna will be dedicated to the rich history of wood processing in Spiš. SOŠ Drevárska will also participate in the organization of craft workshops in the Markušovce historical complex.
