Full description
Armenia is a country known for its craftsmanship. You are therefore invited to learn the historic secrets of its handicraft traditions, as well as to create a souvenir with your very own hands. On this tour, attend a workshop in one of the best hidden places in Yerevan: the Khachkar’s open-air workshop studio, in the downtown. Leave for your tour in the morning and head to a studio, discover a huge collection of cross-stones exhibited all around the workshop. Here, observe the tradition of Armenian stone carving up close, and spark some inspiration for your own project. Learning under the master’s guidance and supervision, you'll soon be able to carve traditional Armenian patterns on a small piece of volcanic stone. Please note that this craft is very messy, with clouds of orange dust forming when you cut into the stone, so take the master's advice and wear a comfortable t-shirt for the class. Of course, no work of art can be created without a real effort, so expect your clothes to be covered in dust. Enjoy the friendly and warm hearted atmosphere as you let your creativity flow. At the end of the traditional masterclass, feel free to take your hand-made piece of Armenia with you.
