Trip Details – Quilting Workshop – Mongolia one day tour

‘It was amazing to meet Selenge and all of the women at the quilting centre. It was a really inspiring experience to get to see the wonderful work they are doing there and learn all about the projects they are doing! They were incredibly welcoming and it was really great to spend some time there with them.’ EL guest Emma 

Mongolian Quilting Centre

The Mongolian Quilting Centre is known more formally as the New Way Life NGO – established in 2005 by Selenge Tserendash to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged and unemployed women.  They are trained in the art of quilting, textiles and embroidery and use their skills to generate income for their families by crafting products to sell. (We have been working with the quilting centre for over a decade and look at different ways we can support their work.)

As well as making everyday items such as tote bags and tablecloths, they also create individual pieces of fabric artwork made from discarded and recycled material such as their stunning wall hangings.

You’ll spend the day at the centre and workshop working alongside some of the women supported by the NGO. It will be an informal insight into the workings of a small NGO as well as a way to meet local people and be part of their ideas and fears. You’ll also come away with a fantastic Mongolian-style wall hanging as well as spending the day helping to support local women and the economy.

Tradtional embroidery is an important part of Mongolia’s cultural heritage and the skills used by the women of the Mongolian Quilting Centre are an extension of this.
‘Having the chance to meet the people who are part of this project was an incredible experience as was having the opportunity to be taught by them. It is an amazing project that is doing so much to support both the local community as well as women in their outreach projects.’ EL guest Emma
