Description

A workshop aimed for those who want to learn more about weaving.

Weaving is much more than crossing wires on a loom. Yarns can be lines of colour at the service of the imagination and creativity. To weave is to organize the mind, cultivating and uplifting it.

In this introductory course you will have the opportunity to learn the basic weaving techniques.

Each participant will have a loom available to perform their own work with the support of the teacher.
