One of our main interests is the study of textiles in different cultures, but we also investigate and implement modern crafts.

We work mainly with wool from local sheep, we process it from the fleece, washing it, carding it, spinning it, dyeing it with natural dyes and knitting/crocheting it. We also study and experiment with felting and its many possibilities.
