The center has the following groups: carpet weaving, beading, pottery, embroidery, embroidery-carpet, dance, dhol, painting, macrame, gobelin and other groups. The center also has a group where children learn knitting national socks ''shatal''.
''We also have 6 groups of carpet weaving, pottery and national socks, "shatal" groups. Another group of carpet weaving was opened in Mets Tagher this year. About 360 children attend our center, of which 180 are from the Hadrut Children's Creative Center, and 180 from the communities.
The number of children attending the center is increasing year after year," said the director and informed them that they regularly participate in various exhibitions.
Talking about national socks ''shatal'', she informed that in ancient times it was used as a gift for bride.
"At present in Artsakh and Armenia there is a great demand for these socks. Taking part in different events, we have noticed that the fabric of these socks is only peculiar to our region. It is a unique fabric that requires great work.
