The Paraguayan Harp is the national instrument of Paraguay. From 1:30-2:15pm, South American harpist, Nicolas Carter, will weave his outstanding harp music with storytelling in a musical journey through the various cultures of Latin America. Following the workshop from 2:30-3:30pm, we continue our theme of the “stringed arts” in a hands-on basic weaving workshop. Participants will learn the basics of weaving on a cardboard loom and can take home their handmade creations! Free and open to the public.
