Become an artisan for a day and enjoy a unique travel experience with Uli.
an artisan weaver and dyer from Germany who has been settled and in love with Gran Canaria since 1998. In the last 10 years I have worked with great passion to become an officially recognized craftswomen.
MY PASSION IS…
I am passionate about all textile culture and above all the nature and great variety of native flora in the Canary Islands. The plants give me an almost unlimited field to experiment with the world of dyeing. I dye all my products in wool and silk with natural dyes, which I collect on my walks. The star is definitely cochineal, which has been grown in the Canaries since the nineteenth century and which was of great impotence to the local economy.
I would like you to experiment with me in my dye workshop. We can use the old Japanese technique of shibori or play with an eco print, which consists of transferring the pigments of plant material directly onto the fabric, leaving some amazing imprints. As a gift to yourself you will be able to take home a beautiful silk scarf closely linked to nature.
