We are a team of professionals with different working and educational backgrounds, who have found at P.D.V Dreptaru Ltd. the place to create and convey emotions. Thus, we took all that we are passionate about and transformed it into this project named Dreptaru Workshops. It was built on our entire expertise and experience, with the goal to provide the best quality services with a maximum of professionalism.

Beyond the urge to do things rightly, what essentially motivates us is that this project gives us the extraordinary opportunity to accomplish the things which bring us happiness and enjoyment.

Motion, rhythm, drawing, music, dancing, colour. These are all elements around which we constantly rediscover ourselves. Now we want to actually reify them into Dreptaru Workshops.
