Revisiting Xanana's Cultural Centre
Xanana's Cultural Centre. As the women at Belekria were quite busy, I took on the task of applying a Timorese handwoven tais. The process of creating a wide bias binding was quite tediuos and led to a few iron burnt fingertips, however the finished product looked great!
The mat is approx 6mx3m.
Samuel thought it would be nice to have Emmy representing her family/friends form Atekru who wove the mats.
And Israel and Xakira explored the children's section of the library, enjoying the huge pile of cushions, most of them sewn by Belekria
