Georgia

1. Crafting

Along with ongoing tendency for globalization, the popularization of craft and folk art becomes an inevitable part of preserving National traditions and culture in many different countries.
In Georgia every tourist has opportunity to take part in courses of the traditional craft.

 

2. Preparation of Curchkhela

Churchkhela is a home-made Georgian product. Georgians usually make Churchkhela in Autumn when the primary ingredients, grapes and nuts, are harvested. It is a string of walnut halves that have been dipped in grape juice called Tatara or Phelamushi (grape juice thickened with flour), and dried in the sun. No sugar is added to make real Churchkhela. Instead of walnuts sometimes nuts or almonds are used in the regions of west Georgia. The shape of Churchkhela looks like a candle; some people say it looks like a sausage. Georgian warriors carried Churchkhelas with them because they contain many calories. The best Churchkhela is made in Kakheti region that is famous as the motherland of wine.

 

3. Preparation Georgian traditional food- Khinkali

Khinkali is a Georgian dumpling, which originated in the Georgian mountain regions of Pshavi, Mtiuleti and Khevsureti. Varieties of khinkali spread from there across different parts of the Caucasus. The fillings of khinkali vary with the area. The original recipe, the so-called khevsuruli, consisted of only minced meat (lamb or beef and pork mixed), onions, chili pepper, salt and cumin. However, the modern recipe used mostly especially in Georgian urban areas, the so-called kalakuri, uses herbs like parsley and cilantro. In Azerbaijan and other Muslim-majority areas the use of beef and lamb is more prevalent. Mushrooms, potatoes, or cheese may be used in place of meat. In Georgia you have an opportunity to take part in preparation of Khinkali in many regions of Georgia.

 

4. Felt making

Tusheti is a historic region in northeastern Georgia, located on the northern slopes of the greater Caucasus Mountains, famous for its breathtaking nature, incredible high castles and, of course, unique culture. In particular, Tusheti stands out among the highland parts of Georgia with its ancient customs. The inhabitants of the highland use wool and felt to create amazing clothes, shoes and rugs. Local women skillfully decorate them with geometric shapes and patterns, using only plant extract to form harmonious color palettes.
The exhibition reflected the unique traditions, folklore and the soul of Tusheti, yet it is impossible to describe what this place really looks like. Every Georgian and every tourist has to go and see it with their own eyes and experience an amazing world they have not known before.

 

5. Winepress

Grape is pressed is a winepress, made of stone or wood, having a form of a boat. The bottom of the winepress is covered with the chain of a cornel and a fern. Peasant was getting into the winepress, squashing grapes with his feet, with accompaniment of songs and screams. Now, this tradition of wine pressing is not followed much and it can now be visible at wine festivals and theatrical shows. Therefore everyone can take part in this process.
