Save Event: Mapuche Weaving with Liz Beasley

I've seen this

Would you like to learn the traditional art of Mapuche Weaving from Southern Chile? Make beautiful woven textiles on a simple loom constructed from inexpensive, recycled, or natural materials?


 Liz was taught to weave by Jessica, a wonderful weaver in Chile. Since then Liz have been so inspired by the wisdom of the Mapuche, and, indeed, of all Chilean artisans, who instinctively recycle or "make do" when we, all too often, automatically look for the most sophisticated (read "expensive"!) equipment to make our lives "easier".

  Liz built her own loom from ash branches cut in the woods, with a couple of old fence posts and a broom handle to complete the job. And do you know what? It not only allows her to weave beautiful textiles, but it looks fab too.

  So, if this idea appeals to you book on this course.

  The course starts on Sunday morning at 10am, with a delicious home cooked meal at 12. An afternoon tea will be provided and the day finishes at 4pm. 

  Please check our website for our recommended places to stay. If you wish to stay on site, we have 2 double bedrooms with B&B, a 4m bell tent which can be rented or you may bring your own tent. These will be charged at an extra cost, prices on application. There is on site parking for all.
