Handicraft training institute all set to revolutionize itself

Zorig Chususm, the two institutes that have been training artisans since years are all set to revolutionize the way they impart guidance to the apprentices. Presently, the trainees are trained by traditional means. This means that they are given hands on training on crafts without imparting bookish knowledge.

The two institutes offer training in about half a dozen crafts like wood carving, sculpture, tailoring and embroidery, mural painting, silver smith and wood turning, but do not have any coordination of sorts, but again all this is set to change now.

The institutes are all set to have a curriculum and intend to start the same with a course on embroidery. This will immensely help the trainees in upgrading their skills, to face competition from foreign goods and also ensure that education provided at both institutes was the same.

The institutes are also planning to introduce sewing machines in order to compete with mass mechanized produced goods, but at the same time will take utmost care to ensure that there is no compromise on quality.

This has become a necessity since mass produced goods sell cheap and it was difficult to compete with those goods. The main purpose behind changing the system as well as introducing sewing machines was to reduce the lead times in producing and sending the handicrafts to the market.
