The ARMENECOOP social enterprise welcomes you to a master sewing class, which highlights the contemporary revitalization of Armenian creativity and crafts. In this short class, visitors not only learn about the history and culture of sewing in Armenia, but also create a souvenir to take home. Local women who work with ARMENECOOP lead the classes, which include samples of traditional gata and tea.

Since 2017, ARMENECOOP has educated two generations of women in craft and entrepreneurship. The proceeds from the sale of these products are reinvested in educational courses and the general upkeep of ARMENECOOP.
