Escuela Nº50 de Durazno
A while ago, ANEP, the National Association of Elementary School, invited us to participate in a special event that was going to be held at Escuela Nº50 in Durazno.
In Uruguay each public school has a number, as well as a name. This school is located in the department of Durazno, which is in the very center of our country.
The project consisted of a group of artisans called Artesanas Las Abejitas teaching the children how to weave, using our yarns.
What a wonderful opportunity to be a small part in introducing the children to this ancient technique, thus keeping traditions alive. Thank you for letting us be a small part of this project.
