I went to Peru many years ago and now I wonder how much inspiring places I missed.These tiles are absolutely beautiful, are you planning some interesting weaving out of them?
Hi Aracne,Nice to see you again here.I think there is so many beautiful places in Peru and this one is just one of them. I like when travelling to visit places with not so many tourist, and my husband (from Peru) found this place, in the middle of Lima.At the moment I am not planning any weaving out of this, except I use the tiles for color inspiration, so in a way yes, I guess ;-)
Hallo, Karina!Do you know this place: www.fondazionelisio.org ?it is the only place in the world (so I am told) where they still weave velvet by hand.The have very interesting courses, I took a few of the easiest. If you want more info you can get in touch with me: blandina dot steinhauslin at gmail dot com. The fondazione is worth a visit should you plan to come to Florence. Bye! Blandina
Hi Blandina,Yes, I know Fondazione Lisio in Firenze. I have never been at the weaver school, but have met Eva Basile several times.One of my colleages I share studio with Have been there several times. I have also been considering going there because of the velvet, but closest to my heart is the GAUZE, which I have studied in Japan and Peru.Karina
