Children can acquire such diverse and useful skills from art including creativity, confidence and perseverance, helping them start off on the path to success.”
Through their participation at KidZania, Oriental Weavers offers children the chance to design and create their own carpet in the course of 20 minutes. Those who succeed in doing so will take their carpets home.
