On Saturday morning when I popped into Ovelha Negra for a little bit, Tita was there teaching a weaving class. Here are some of her wonderful works of art she brought along to show what one can do with weaving.

If you’re interested in taking her workshop, she will be at Ovelha Negra again on Friday November 20 from 14.00 until 18.00, please contact the shop to sign up for this workshop.

And now without further ado…..
