Crochet Group

<< Back to Projects List

The project started in June 2009 in Matara, with a training workshop for 13 women. The women were weekly trained for three months to make crochet toys. The material and equipment were also provided by Transrural Trust. The toys were sold in the Shoba Gallery on a consignment basis and some samples were sent to the UK. However, the sales of the initial products were disappointing. The plan now is to develop some new designs to high quality standards that customers want to buy.
