    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is very easy to get to the southern part of Lake Baikal from us. This is an hour by local train. If you go in the opposite direction, in an hour you will be in Irkutsk. We have many friends in Irkutsk, on Lake Baikal and on the Olkhon island. Our social circle is very open to communication, co-creation and cultural exchange. Our friends can become your friends.
    We make beautiful things of felted wool. These are hats, shoes and carpets. Therefore, we will be happy to welcome people engaged in creative work to share experiences and joint projects. We also will be happy to teach you the basics of our skills.
