It was such a pleasure for me to get an absolutely positive feedback on the announcement of offering weaving workshops for begginers in Rethymno and Chania.Groups of 4 were soon complete and happy,emerging weavers filled our studio with their creative mood and positive energy.
Having people accepting and supporting what you do is a blessing indeed. I try really hard to persuade people that weaving is not a craft of the past, an art that passed away, as most people in my country think, but a craft that evolves, an Art with incredible potential and numerous applications.In Greece weaving has been a neglected Art for over two generations…But things are getting better and better every day as people and especially younger people are getting in touch with this magical craft.There are many ambitious artists and entrepreneurs nowadays promoting and breathing new air into weaving and this is really encouraging for the future of weaving.
Special thanks to Eleni Teneketzi,owner of Koukoubook bookstore in Chania.She offered her beautiful space in the centre of the town for our workshops.Such a sweet, kind and talented girl in the town’s most updated bookshop!!
