Oral History Mini-Documentaries

La Faena: Arpillera Workshop

Two arpilleristas from Peñalolén tell their stories, contributing to our understanding of the origins of arpilleras: Patricia Hidalgo (La Faena Taller) and María Madariaga (Lo Hermida Taller). Arpilleras are patchwork tapestries that are still crafted today, but were begun as a coping method and source of income during Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship.
