(SPOT.ph) Do you ever wonder where your grandmother got the bakya or basket they’ve been using for years now and how come these items are not easily worn out? Enrich your experience by learning folk arts that are still being practiced in different regions in the Philippines. Likha-an sa Intramuros is conducting Inukit sa Dayap ng Bulacan, a demo-workshop on November 22, 4 p.m. at Revellin de Real in Intramuros, Manila.
Likha-an sa Intramuros, in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts, started offering a series of workshops and demonstrations on folk arts in October. The last session, which focuses on carving preserved fruits like dayap, is on November 22. The workshop is limited to only 25 slots only.
Keeping our traditions alive means learning, practicing and incorporating them in our lives. It would benefit the next generation, who will become cultural bearers of these traditions.
Inukit sa Dayap ng Bulacan is on November 22, 4 p.m. at Revellin De Real de Bagumbayan, Intramuros, Manila City. Pre-registration is required.
