Textile Journeys In Uruguay – Travesías Textiles en el Uruguay

The success of World Textile Art (WTA) exhibit, “Textile Journeys” in Uruguay includes very interesting side exhibitions such as “Inclusive Nets” (Redes Inclusivas) in the city of Maldonado.

Travesías Textiles

We had already enjoyed the presence of artist Humberto Demarco in the 4th WTA Biennial in San José, Costa Rica. Demarco, who offered a sensorial art workshop for the blind in 2006 here in Costa Rica, is now offering “Inclusive Nets” workshops in Uruguay, where sight and motor incapacitation victims can learn to weave.


Congratulations to WTA President, Ms. Pilar Tobón, and all artists involved in this very special exhibition.
