What you'll do

Welcome to my weaving atelier! In this workshop you will learn the basics of weaving while taking in Menorca’s beautiful countryside. The course is tailor made to all weaving levels, even absolute begginers. The only requisite to take this course is a creative will in order to enjoy a wonderful time weaving in this idyllic island!

I will guide you through the process of designing your own piece, which you will take home. There are several project options available, so you can choose whichever you like the most!
Option 1: Wall hanging
Option 2: Sandals
Option 3: Circle decor
Option 4: Straps

To top it all off, we will decorate our creations with tassels, pompons... or even learn different techniques of making cords or bracelets.

All supplies and looms* will be provided, as well as typical pastries and a refreshing pomada, the traditional cocktail of Menorca, prepared with Gin Xoriguer and lemonade.

*Looms are for course use only.
Transportation is available but not included.

I’m Blanca De La Sotilla, founder and designer of https://www.instagram.com/tunkicrafts/ I’m a former private banker from Madrid who left everything behind to live new adventures in Peru, where I learned everything about the fantastic world of weaving by working hand-to-hand with local master artisans.

Nowadays, I’m very lucky to live in this magical island. Menorca is a place full of positive energy, stunning nature and ancient traditions where everything revolves about slow life.

Weaving is my passion, and I love sharing my knowledge about it with those who are interested in this beautiful and rewarding technique.

Wow! My husband and I had a magical experience learning to weave guided by Blanca. Blanca is extremely friendly and hospitable. Talking to her about her passion for weaving and handcrafts was as good as the weaving itself! The experience is at a breath-taking location on the island. Stunning views. I highly recommend this for couples, groups or people who just love hand crafting. I can’t thank Blanca enough for this experience!!

Great experience, firstly the location was great, it was beautiful and very peaceful, perfect for some crafting. Blanca was a great host, she made me feel welcomed straight away, told me about her and gave me some insight into the world of weaving. Her English was perfect which really helped as I’m not sure I could have done this in Spanish. She really knows everything about weaving and can help you learn some new skills even for a beginner like me. Overall I had a great afternoon and would recommend this experience.

Una actividad diferente para hacer si estás en Menorca! Blanca sabe mucho del tema y transmite su pasión con mucho cariño. Está pendiente en todo momento de si necesitas ayuda y te hace sentir muy cómoda. Además fue súper relajante!

I loved the whole experience! It was my first time weaving and despite having no experience whatsoever I took my wall hanger home :) The site is fantastic, in a typically Menorcan country house. I loved the environment of total tranquility surrounded by nature. Blanquita is a very affectionate, friendly and thoughtful hostess. I'm vegan, and she went the extra mile to make sure there were proper snacks for me. Delicious by the way. Thank you! 100% recommended!
