Chris Aslan Alexander took us on a magical virtual journey to the walled city of Khiva, a remote desert oasis in Uzbekistan. He told us the marvellous story of his efforts to rediscover the lost arts of traditional carpet making and establish a self-sufficient carpet workshop offering employment to local women and disabled people. Members and guests of ADAPT, FIWAL, and Corona from as far away as India, Dubai and Jordan were enchanted by Chris’ fascinating presentation.
