What you'll do

We will approach together the world of weaving, observing the functioning of an ancient traditional loom of Sardinia and the fabrics that I produced with it.
So we will put ourselves around the big table where four school frames will be placed, comb / heddle. I will explain their operation and the types of fabrics that can be made.
After we take the threads to prepare the warp, we will wrap it around the pegs of the table warps and, once ready, we will mount it on the small table frames.
We will introduce the wires in the holes of the comb / heddle, we will tie them to the front beam, we will put them in tension and ... we will be ready to weave.

In the world of weaving I am known as BruJana, the Jana Bruna.
In the Sardinian tradition the Janas, little fairies, taught women to weave.
In my personal research I visit Sardinia to meet the weavers, and some rare weaver. With them all the threads and relationships and they transmit their knowledge, their techniques, their stories to me.
I collect them, rework them and make them mine.
I create my fabrics and my artifacts.
But above all I try to collect and retransmit the ancient knowledge, so that it does not get lost but is still alive and current.

Where you'll be

We will work on the ground floor of a typical tower house of 1700, in the historic center of Bosa. In ancient times the ground floors of these houses were often used as workshops and I am proud to have brought this space back to its origins.

I had a fantastic day learning to weave with Bruna. She was so patient, interesting and a great teacher. It's a pretty intense day and so satisfying to take your own creation home. Totally recommend it. I think I may have a new hobby!

L'esperienza di tessitura con Bruna é stata fantastica! Bruna è paziente e gentile, è un'insegnante esperta che trasmette il suo sapere con generosità e passione. Sono molto contenta di avere avuto questa esperienza con Bruna e mi auguro di avere l'occasione di ripeterla. Consiglio vivamente a chi è curiosa di avvicinarsi al magico mondo della tessitura, di farlo con la Jana Bruna!

Bruna è fantastica. Abbiamo regalato questa esperienza ad un'amica che ha concluso gli studi in fashion design e non potevamo far scelta più azzeccata. Bruna sin da subito si è impegnata nel poterle offrire un'esperienza fuori dal comune, ricca di conoscenza, personalizzata ed emozionante. Non è stato solo uno scambio di tecniche ma soprattutto di visioni sull'arte, sulla vita, sulle tradizioni della Sardegna e su milioni di altri aspetti che lei trasmette con tantissimo entusiasmo e passione. È stata affrontata una parte teorica ricchissima e successivamente la parte pratica sul telaio. È stato emozionante per la nostra festeggiata, e ha ispirato tanto anche noi ad intraprendere il corso in un futuro molto prossimo. Davvero sinceramente consigliata per tutti coloro alla ricerca di una giornata creativa, fruttuosa e genuina sotto mille punti di vista!

I spent a wonderful day with Bruna learning about a skill I had never known of before. As a solo traveler it was so good to stop, slow down, focus on creating something and learn about weaving from the source.

We had a great day with Bruna and learned a lot about weaving techniques and the Sardinian tradition. We were only 3 people, a perfect group size. Bruna is very kind and welcoming and made us feel like guests and even offered us her homemade Marmelade :-) In the end we made our own little scarfs which now remind us of this great day in Bosa. I can highly recommend!
