Initiation to weaving
Curious to know how your grandparents’ chairs were made? Want to use your hands to learn an ancestral know-how?
This 3-hour workshop led by Diana, a great lover of hand-made weaving, will be a great opportunity to discover this age-old art. We will learn different weaving techniques by working with a superb material: fique. This natural fiber comes from a plant of the agave family and is mainly found in Colombia, where it is widely used to weave coffee bags, clothes and other everyday objects…
Each participant will have the choice of several bright colors to braid his or her sample.
Skills required: none, except a little patience!
The price includes all materials and advice in Spanish.
