Learn crafting skills passed down through the generations at a shyrdak workshop, where an expert felter will teach you the basics behind how those gorgeous traditional carpets and wall-hangings that adorn homes and restaurants throughout the country are made. The art of making shyrdaks or ala kiyiz is a centuries-old tradition intertwined with Kyrgyz nomadic life. Learn the history and significance of these felt carpets — the patterns often convey hidden meanings — while making your own handicraft, which works well as a souvenir or gift!
