|Email item||Print item||
Last weekend Alda Bugeja of Gozo and her students gave a pratical demonstration of the typical Gozitan Loom and Art of Weaving, Macramé and Kumihimo. The event proved to be such a success with visitors that they are to hold an extra session this coming Sunday, the 4th of August.
Alda Bugeja is very well know both in Gozo and Malta for her mastership of this craft and for her works in Macramé (a form of textile-making using knotting) and Kumihimo (a form of rope making by interlacing strands).
There will also be a large display of artifacts and an interesting documentary film on this ancient art will accompany the expert hands of the weavers.
Gozo Weaving with Alda Bugeja can be found at ‘Ir-Rokna tal-Kreattività ma’ Amina Contin,’ at 8, Triq L-Gharb, on the corner between the two roads to San Lawrenz and Gharb villages (bus 311 and 312).
Entrance is free and everyone is invited to attend.
