Weaving Master of Cordillera facilitates a workshop for Baguio tourists

Apr 22, 2017

BAGUIO CITY – Jason Domling of Sagada, Mountain Province, also known as the “Laga Master” or the Master of Traditional Rattan Weaving will facilitate a summer activity called “Rattan Weaving Workshop” on April 29, 2017 in partnership with Café Yagam and Nest Creative Space to attach a remarkable experience to the tourists of Baguio City.
The Laga Master is an artist and a cultural worker who is recognized as the most popular weavers in the whole Cordillera region. He is also known for transforming “pasiking”, the traditional backpack of the region in contemporary ways. His enormous “pasiking” which is about 9 feet tall is being displayed at Museo Kordilyera, which is located at the University of the Philippines Baguio.
According to Carla Rosito, owner of Café Yagam, Domling’s Rattan Weaving Workshop serves as a new taste of cultural activity for the tourists. It is also a way to appreciate Cordilleran culture through learning the process of weaving, which is considered as one of the splendid cultural products of the region.
The workshop has a P500 registration fee which includes free lunch and weaving materials. Domling will be teaching how to design bottles and mugs through the art of weaving, and he suggests those who are interested in the workshop to bring their own bottles and mugs that are ready for designing.
The Rattan Weaving Workshop will start on Saturday, April 29, from 10am to 2pm at Café Yagam which is located at #25 J. Felipe St., Baguio City. Summer cultural activities similar to this by different indigenous artists will also follow next month, May 6, 13, 20, and 27.
For interested registrants, more details and information are posted on Café Yagam’s Facebook page and can be contacted through their mobile number 0908-514-0684. Ma. Theresita C. Garcia, UC intern
