Showcasing this skill to the public

The carpet weaving projects have expanded as AIL is now offering this instruction at the newly re-opened Citadel in Herat City.  This location is for the public, and classes are being held on a regular basis and the required materials and instructors are being paid for by AIL.  As interest in this skill grows, the need for additional frames becomes necessary.  AIL Staff took a frame for carpet making from one of the learning centers and will be making plans to purchase two additional frames soon in order to continue the production of carpets.
