Proposing a space where skilled craftspeople can come and share the process involved in their craft. This is meant especially to expose children experientially to the joy of creating with their own hands and learning the process from craftspeople they do not usually get the opportunity to interact w

Few examples of the crafts that skilled craftspeople will come and share: basket weaving, pottery/clay-work, knitting and crochet, and ethnic art.

For each session, a skilled craftsperson will be hired for half a day.

Initially, the craft learning sessions will be held on weekends.

Earning will be from the fees charged for participating in the learning sessions.


Target Location :

Initially Kathmandu valley


Target Audience :

Children and adolescent

Scope :


Benefit :

The workshops will give participants a first-hand experience of learning the process involved in a particular craft and making a creation with their hands.

It will also give people the opportunity to interact directly with and learn from skilled craftspeople, whose craft people otherwise may only see as a finished product and not in the process of creation. This will increase appreciation for hand crafts.  

The planned program encourages the use of hands to make creations, which is becoming less and less common in an age where life is dominated by technology and gadgets.
