What you'll do

Dreams are like melodies in our mind. Thousands of years ago, the ancient Peruvians recorded those dreams and melodies in their textiles. Linear, geometric and abstract designs that only we can understand. These designs are used in clothing, furniture, baby blankets, ceramics, all Amazonian art.

In our workshop, what we will do is express our dreams, our melodies in beautiful pieces of textiles painted with the ancient technique of the Peruvian Amazon, Kene. We will share the Amazonian worldview, the way they connect with nature and their gods.
At the end of the workshop, each one will have created their own textile piece, decorated with free inspiration and with the teacher's guidance.

We enjoyed the class and it was good to experience something different, however it didn't feel like true value for money. Christi clearly has a lot of artistic knowledge and personal experience, unfortunately unless we asked questions we were not given much instruction or guidance. This was a shame and we feel we could have bought the equipment ourselves and had a go at home. With a few improvements such as more input from Christi and an offer of a drink whilst painting it could be really fun - hopefully this will help improve the class.
