"Wool + Paper Felting Journey"
September 8-19, 2017
 

Join us in Peru, a place of vast beauty and millenary culture, and the once-epicenter of the Inca Empire. Peru is a country of contrasts, where cutting-edge high-rises stand beside 18th century churches; where modern fusion cuisine takes cues from ingredients used for millennia; and where Peruvians proudly wear the patterned textiles of peoples past. Release your creativity and immerse yourself in a felting and Joomchi workshop with Spanish artist Eva Camacho, and Polish artist Ania Gilmore. Eva will introduce you to traditional wool felting and guide you to make your own painterly surfaced personalized vest. Ania will introduce you to Joomchi, the traditional Korean way of making textured mulberry handmade paper. You will make a flat wall paper piece and a Joomchi necklace to match your vest.
