Vegetal fibres crafts at St Fagans Craft Festival
Thefestival of St Fagans was one of the highlights of our plan to have a person at La Ciutadella Ibèrica of Calafell to have a person specialised in vegetal fibres crafts, because it was a good occasion to showcase my knowledge in a big like this.
I was in the first stall so I was one of the firsts craftpeople who visitors could see in action. I could explain what I was doing with esparto grass and showed some examples of objects made with this, also I could explain about the Iberian civilisation.
It was really great to have the possibility to work with the tools that the University of Exeter participants brought, especially the ones to work with flax. It gave me alot of ideas to implement flax works in activities happening in Calafell.
It was wonderful as well to share experiences with other craftspeople coming from many countries accross Europe and learn from their work.
During the other conference days, I attended the lectures and site visits of the program.
