The main objective of the project is a process of apprenticeship and collaboration on the traditional art of weaving. The project develops itself in depth (education, inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities, production) and in breadth (dissemination, creation of educational and productive points in five European countries and an open to everyone, digital platform with educational material). It connects the past with the future by attempting to revive a traditional art in the modern world and to design social cooperative enterprises that will create jobs for people with intellectual disabilities and other vulnerable groups of people from the typical population. A second aim is to provide the material and the expertise to people who wish to lead training weaving workshops. More specifically the project aims to:
To ensure the maintenance of weaving workshops in vocational training centers and set up new ones.
- The development of manuals for (a) the trainers and (b) the trainees with intellectual disabilities.
- Improve the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities by giving the chance to local communities to attend in inclusive weaving seminars.
