    The purpose of this group is to promote
    the ancient art of rug weaving in the greater NY area.

    If you are an arts & crafts lover, this another medium
    you will simply love to work in.

    However, unlike knitting or other crafts,
    there is nowhere in Manhattan to
    learn the secrets of rug weaving...until NOW!

    We are starting off with beginner's workshops
    with the hopes of creating a future rug weaving circle.

    THE ART OF RUG WEAVING
    LEARN FROM WORLD RENOWNED
    MASTER CRAFTSMAN HAYK OLTACI

    A whole new world will open up to you!
    Traditional music and coffees
