EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF ARMENIAN DESIGNERS AND ARTISANS

TUMO Studios is a free educational program for young adults focused on the creation of analog products – beautiful things you can touch, wear, taste and smell; things you can cherish and use in your daily life; tangible things that add quality to the everyday. That’s kind of our thing.

EXPLORING THE UNCONVENTIONAL

“We learned how to show more through minimalism,” said atelier participant Arpi Demurchyan, who designed a ghapama tray with triangular serving utensils. “Roberto asked us to approach the project as product designers, making functional dining ware for specific dishes.”

BECOME A STUDENT

Offering technical courses and design ateliers in everything under the sun, from jewelry making and ceramics to fashion and embroidery, TUMO Studios is open to everyone between the ages of 16 and 28. And that’s not all… learning at TUMO Studios is completely free!
