24 April – 2 May 2010 is the 14th annual Feria de Artesanía in the city of Ourense in Galicia, north Spain. The dates are always around the weekends at the end of April / first week of May and the fair is held in the centre of the city. In 2010 the fair is held in a square near the Plaza de Abastos (market and post office area of the city) but in previous years it has been held on the Rúa de Paseo.
Anna Champeney, weaver, and Lluis Grau, Basketmaker, will be at the fair to demonstrate on the first and last Saturday of the craft fair – but not the other days. See below –
24 April 2010 – Hand-weaving and basketmaking demos + raffle of a linen cushion worth over 60€ (see photos) and a mushroom picking basket
- 1 May 2010 – Drop-in willow fish workshops for families with children with Lluis Grau,
Do come to see us at the fair- you can have a go at weaving on a Louet loom for free (if the lads in the photo can weave a simple cloth then so can you!) as well as to see us at work – and see and buy our work or simply have a chat.
SPECIAL COURSE OFFER – Book up on any of our 2010 courses at the craft fair and we´ll give you a 5€ discount!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
