About the project
Through a blended learning approach, Raz’s Craft Toolkit sharing aimed to encourage weaving communities in Iloilo, Panay Island and Siquijor to sustain their businesses in the time of Covid-19.
For better learning experience and accessibility, the learning modules were translated from English to Hiligaynon and Kinaray-a, the common local languages in the selected communities.
Raz worked with the following communities for his Craft Toolkit face-to-face sessions:
Indag-an weavers (Miag-ao, Iloilo)
Baraclyan Weavers Association (Miag-ao, Iloilo)
Salngan Livelihood and Multi-purpose Cooperative (Oton, Iloilo)
Cabayogan Women Weavers Association (Badiangan, Iloilo)
Balangaw Creative Farmfolks Association (Lambunao, Iloilo)
Artists, designers, entrepreneurs (Siquijor)
