Fibrart: culture and traditions

Fibrart wants to be an alive and experiential way on transmission of traditions. Particularly in the treatment of wool. It is offered in schools, fairs, occupational centers, civic centers, associations and any interested group.
Fibrart presents, in one or several days, very simple techniques, practical and easy to apply to our daily lives. We recreate the traditions from our possibilities.
