Join Jimena Asenjo, Luciana Pérez and artist Guadalupe Sepúlveda for an overview and demonstration of miniature objects created with “crin” (horsehair weaving). This colorful art form has its roots in a 200-year-old tradition from the city of Rari, located 310 kilometers south of Santiago, Chile.
If you would like to try the crin technique at home during the demonstration, you will need scissors and plastic fiber (such as fishing line) in at least two colors.
This program is a collaboration with the Embassy of Chile and the Pacific Alliance.
