“Carpetologia workshop” is an invitation to enter a space as a sacred system, constructed through various media and messages. Connections between nature, architecture, folk stories, myth, and legends of Aruba will result in mixed media carpets. Since Aruba has the mystical background and the art of storytelling there is quite visible, during the “Carpetologia workshop” participants with the guidance of Lyubov Matyunina will collect the stories/fairy tales of the land and visualize them into the carpets. 
Theme: Fairy tales/folk tales of Caribbean, myth, and fantasies.
Technique: Patchwork, embroidery, application, stamps/printing, linocut, painting, and photography.
