The trainees also paid a visit to the local community. Through an in-depth field study of the making and transmission of elechek, a traditional white Kyrgyz female headdress (in a form of a turban) made of many layers of a single piece of silk, wool or cotton, the trainees further studied and used what they had learned during the workshop.
The trainees highly praised the curriculum, organization and teaching methods of the workshop. They said it helped them master relevant knowledge of the Convention and provided practical and effective guidance for their safeguarding work. They looked forward to such a workshop organized by the Centre again.
