In the summer fo 2016, a group of designers from Pratt led by program director, Rebecca Welz, faculty member in the Industrial Desgin and Foundation Design departments, traveled to Antigua, Guatemala. They worked with woodworkers, weavers, leatherworkers, shoemakers, a welder, seamstresses, and a silver smith to fabricate products. Everyday they walked together through the colonial town on uneven streets to the textile museum, Casa del Tejido Antiguo to meet the artisans to work together. This exhibition shows some of the work that was created and gives a glimpse into a magical experience in Antigua.
