Ethnic weaving

For those who have mastered the basics.

A country week is about the textiles of one specific country.

Acquire more knowledge and understanding by means of a lecture and slideshow, books, and by studying authentic fabrics. First we first make a miniature replica, complete with finishing, and then we design, carry out and finish a project. After one week, you can take your finished product home.
