My Handmade Armenia Festival is the biggest crafts festival organized to the date in Armenia. Each year, it visits the Cafesjian Sculpture Garden to represent handmade goods made by regional artisans from Armenia. For the first time we will also have guests from Georgia who will bring their unique works. The festival will feature artisan demonstrations, interactive craft workshops for visitors, and sales of new product collections.

Artur Petrosyan teaches a festival visitor how to weave willow branches into baskets and other craft.
