I have been teaching weaving on vertical looms for more than 15 years, I have gained experience working with prisoners, disabled people, children and the elderly, taking part in projects involving the inclusion of women even outside my city. With a few hours of lessons it is possible to make a small tapestry by learning the basic techniques.

Hot or cold drinks according to the season and typical sweets.
