Rompiendo Esquemas: Taller y Exp. de Pintura
Creative Exchange Independencia
I am currently working in Independencia with the organization Paza in rural Bolivia , whilst here I am working on my own art pieces influenced by the people I meet here and the way of life.
Textile and natural print work
Watercolour and flower print paintings produced during my stay in Independencia
In addition I am holding art classes with the women weavers, an art colective of teenage girls and some of the younger kids to work with them to explore new and exciting creative outings.
Whilst being surrounded by so many amazing weavers I have also taken advantage of the opportunity to learn the traditional weaving skills of the Andes
I was also privileged to be present for the Annual gathering of the weavers in Haun Carani Huan Carani gathering video
