Traditional Esparto Grass-weaving
Let’s discover one of Spain’s oldest handcrafts! Traditional grass-weaving has been used over the centuries to make anything from baskets to door mats and even weaponry.

We’ll meet Francisco, one of the last real Esparto weavers in the region who will teach us this age-old craft.
