What you'll do

We will approach together the world of weaving, observing the functioning of an ancient traditional loom of Sardinia and the fabrics that I produced with it. So we will put ourselves around the big table where four school frames will be placed, comb / heddle. I will explain their operation and the types of fabrics that can be made. After we take the threads to prepare the warp, we will wrap it around the pegs of the table warps and, once ready, we will mount it on the small table frames. We will introduce the wires in the holes of the comb / heddle, we will tie them to the front beam, we will put them in tension and ... we will be ready to weave.

Bruna

In the world of weaving I am known as BruJana, the Jana Bruna. In the Sardinian tradition the Janas, little fairies, taught women to weave. In my personal research I visit Sardinia to meet the weavers, and some rare weaver. With them all the threads and relationships and they transmit their knowledge, their techniques, their stories to me. I collect them, rework them and make them mine. I create my fabrics and my artifacts. But above all I try to collect and retransmit the ancient knowledge, so that it does not get lost but is still alive and current.

Where you'll be

We will work on the ground floor of a typical tower house of 1700, in the historic center of Bosa. In ancient times the ground floors of these houses were often used as workshops and I am proud to have brought this space back to its origins.
