 Here are some pics of our trip to San Sebastian, a nearby town known for it textiles,  the looms were at least 60 years old and handmade. right down to the gears.  The whole loom shuddered as we had a demonstration by the owner.  They make largely tablecloths, placemats, bedspreads and the like.

We were accompanied to San Sebastian by Mary Culham, the wife of the Canadian Ambassador to the OAS, seen here receiving a card made by the students as a welcome and thank you.  She and husband Allan Culham were responsible for the students travelling and performing in Washington DC last fall.  She paid a visit to Es Artes for the first time and gave a lovely speech to the students
