We are announcing yet another workshop of Tushetian rug and traditional stocking-weaving at the AqTushetii residency. The workshop will run through 17 September - 1 October. To register, please write to the following email firstname.lastname@example.org
The two-week-long workshop will be led by the local specialist and ethnographer, Nanuli Azikuri. The participants of the workshop will get introduced to the history of Tushetian weaving and learn the specific knitting tools and methods of the craft, such as wool processing, knitting, and dyeing. The workshop also entails field workshops and finding raw material which will be later used for drying the weavings.
The participants will get a chance to work on their creations but also contribute to a joint artwork, later to be kept at the Aqtushetii residency.
The total cost of the workshop is 350 Euros. The price includes transport Tbilisi-Omalo-Tbilisi, accommodation and three meals per day, as well as all materials and necessary equipment and tools.
The workshop is free of entry for the local Tushetian population.
