    Beauty of Textile Handcrafts

    The Beauty of Textile Handcrafts (BOTH) project is a partnership of three rurally based organisations in Iceland, Slovakia and Scotland. The partners already work in the areas of cultural heritage, traditional skills and crafts, particularly textiles. They share common goals, focused on rural communities, rural activities and economies. In our regions younger people are leaving to find better job opportunities and not returning after higher education. Older people often don’t value the skills they have therefore it is important to work with them and empower them with confidence to participate in the lifelong learning process for further education and skills. The BOTH project gave over 36 participants the opportunity to go to other European countries to gain knowledge, learn new skills and share existing skills and experience in textile handcrafts. BOTH aimed to encourage social integration and, through mobility, a wider appreciation of other European cultures. Each partner hosted a workshop of 1 week’s duration. The working language of the project was English.
