Have you ever wondered whose hands made those souvenirs in Kathmandu tourist shops? Do you want to buy responsibly and empower local Nepalese women? Come take a craft class at our workshop!!
We are 50 local women in Kathmandu who own our workshop and make handmade, fair trade authentic Nepalese crafts and textiles. We focus on empowering, employing and educating women who have survived childhood forced labor, abandonment, and abusive marriages.
We make clothing, accessories and Nepalese handicrafts on an exclusively eco-friendly and sustainable basis, using all natural resources and recycled materials. Your purchase of a single craft class aids all of the beautiful Nepalese women survivors involved in this project to rebuild and strengthen their lives.
What you will learn : During the class our local artisan women will teach you how to make your own souvenir at our workshop.
You will learn the ancient techniques of garment and handicraft making from Nepalese women artisans. You will also learn how to stop child labor and how to uplift disadvantaged women. You will leave with a souvenir that you made in our workshop and the experience of a lifetime!
