BASSETERRE, St Kitts -- Two local crafts artisans from the St Kitts Craft House in St Kitts and Nevis departed the federation on Tuesday for Taiwan.
Molly Imelda Byron and Randy Thomas will spend three weeks in Taiwan interacting with indigenous artisans, while improving their skills in the art of pottery, leather craft, ceramics and quality control. The training opportunity became possible through the cooperation and the support of the ministry of culture and the Taiwan embassy in St Kitts and Nevis.
General manager of the Craft House, Austin Weekes, said, “The management and staff of the Craft House expresses thanks and appreciation to His Excellency Miguel Tsao, the resident ambassador and his staff for their assistance in the overall development and growth of the craft industry in St Kitts and Nevis.”
He further stated that this type of training helps to improve the quality of products being offered to shoppers, giving great value for money.
Byron and Thomas will be returning to the Craft House on 25 October, with the skills for improving products, processes and building capacity amongst other artisans in the organization.
