Once the groups were assigned, we jumped straight to work on the projects. Some of us had a more defined idea of the designs, some came more spontaneously; at the end of day one, objects were already coming along!
Thanks to the Museum of Textiles in the city of Antigua, and specially Alida, we were provided with a beautiful studio space just for us, where the weavers, woodcarvers, shoemakers, ceramicists and silversmiths brought their tools. We work in the museum from 8.30am to 5pm everyday (except Sunday of course!), the staff is absolutely welcoming and helpful, from organisation tasks to technical and sourcing support to even Spanish-English translation!
Here are some pics of all of us collaborating.. Enjoy!
