Eight unemployed women from the village of Metovnica started a training for making handicrafts using a weaving technique. This is the third phase of the project “Handicrafts – Women’s Entrepreneurship”, which our company realizes in cooperation with non-governmental organizations “ Association for Development of the Municipality of Bor” and “Handicrafts Arhaik” from Bor.
During the next three weeks, the students will be introduced, first of all, with the tradition, as well as basic techniques of weaving. This will enable them to independently produce items that will soon be offered to the market through the sales website. That is exactly what will be the fourth, final phase of the project that will shape the efforts of our company to economically help women in rural areas.
So far, within the project, training for women from the village of Brestovac has been carried out, and it was embroidery and gold-embroidery technique, as well as training for women from Slatina, for felting technique. In December, all participants will receive a certificate, and this will occur at the exhibition at which all created products during the realization of all three trainings will be presented.
