Weavers: from the maxi-loom to the maxi-embroidery

22 July, 2019 - 26 July, 2019

The art of weaving is one of the oldest known craft activities and, although our region has a huge wool tradition, its practice initially requires an approach to tools, materials and techniques with which we are no longer familiar.

In this workshop we propose a textile route, based on the game and the enjoyment of ‘learning by doing’, through the observation of our environment and the practice with natural and recycled materials, for which no prior knowledge is required. Weaver from 6 to 12 years old, with zero weaving level required, go ahead and come to build a mini-loom and weave a maxi-embroidery with us!
