Make & Learn with Local Artisans
My Handmade Armenia is one of the major initiatives of the My Armenia program, supporting the growth, and, in some cases, revitalization of craft traditions in Armenia’s rural communities, including wood carving, stone carving, embroidery, carpet weaving, and pottery. While creative technology skills are developing rapidly in Armenia’s urban areas, products made by hand are often relegated to the category of souvenir.
My Handmade Armenia works with artisans and local partners to provide training workshops including product design and development, marketing, costing and pricing, and technical skills—with the aim of expanding and elevating the notion of handmade craft in the market.
These experiences represent individuals and organizations who have benefited from support from My Handmade Armenia-led training activities.
