Some demonstrations that can be done at fairs.

    • Towards the year 1998 I began to do spinning demonstrations with spinning wheels and spindles in artisanal, medieval and environmental fairs.
    • I perform traditional craft demonstrations, the spinner, traditional weaver and dyer with natural dyes.
    • I use carders to mix fibers and colors.
    • I get yarn by twisting the fibers with the spindle and the spinning wheel.
    • I dye fibers with plants, leaves and flowers of our environment.

Show of workshops for schools and fairs.

    • Experimental craft workshops in schools or fairs.
    • Therapeutic value of experimenting and creating with natural elements as invaluable support in special education and children's activities in general.
    • By making felt or fabric, the repetitive "go and come" is relaxing and meditative; connects each child-to with nature and its interior.
    • Workshops focused on learning and experience throughout the elaboration process rather than a final result.
    • Small hands enjoy creating objects from natural materials.
    • The workshops can be done within the classroom, in the countryside near a rural house with a workshop room or where you decide with your school.
