Where you'll be
The workshop is located in the mountain village of Alexandros in the island of Lefkada in an old traditional stone house that hosts guests. It is a separate space with a different entrance. The natural environment as well as the architecture of the village are of great interest to those who want to explore the "heart" of the island.

We had a fantastic experience experience weaving on traditional Greek looms for a few hours in one of the oldest villages in Lefkas. Aggeliki was a great host showing us a short documentary about the history of the loom before proceeding to teach us to weave. We created our own little rag rugs in beautiful colours! The session was fun and very therapeutic, I will definitely return. Thanks Aggeliki!

Aggeliki is a very welcoming person, her home is like a treasure cove, with fabrics and threads and recycled materials, and the superstars ar the centre of the room: her looms. After teaching you the basics, she will tutor you and then let you weave “free”, using the threads as your own brushes. With Aggeliki weaving seems so relaxing and taking home your own fabric is so satisfying!
