Day of sharing to discover the techniques of weaving and the life of the fields.
You will go to the surroundings of the village to look for the plants and minerals used for the natural dyes.
Then workshops will be set up with the various stages of the weaving process: the treatment and spinning of llama and Alpaca wool, the coloring with natural elements, and of course the weaving. You will be able to not only observe but also participate in these workshops.
