Last september I started to teach weaving workshops in Duduá.
Since then, one afternoon every month I have been showing the basic tapestry techniques to 8 different people. I’ve explained how to put the warp in a tiny loom, how to plain weave, soumak and something else. We have used different yarns; wool, paper, vegetable, chunky, thinest, mixing colors and textures, we’ve always had a nice time, at least me!
I’m so happy that along this time I’ve met all these people (even it’s hard for me to remember faces and names) and I’m even more happy when some of they send me pictures of their work.
These are some pictures of the first weavings of those people. Works that have been started in the workshop, and finished at home.
(Thank you Alba, Pax, Gioia and Eva)
And this is a picture taken at the last month workshop. You can see the chaos on the table; yarns, looms and tools.
I also want to show you the work of a girl who assisted in a workshop some months ago. She’s Paz Moreno and she’s an artist. She shared with me the last work she has developed… with weaving techniques!
And finally I want to show the beautiful loom that Eva G. has made by her own, watching a youtube video. She also bought more “professional” tools to continue weaving.
