Visitor Craft Sessions are returning to one of our two favourite Sister Islands.
Saskia Edwards of Cayman Brac Heritage House said that there was a call out for visitors and interested locals to try something new and experience a little bit of Cayman culture during their trip.
“The Visitor Craft Session programme allows tourists to the Brac an opportunity to interact with local artisans while learning about Caymanian culture through a particular craft. During a session, guests are told about the historical significance behind the items they make and the materials that are used. In addition to creating a one-of-a-kind souvenir, this great social activity leaves participants with a fun, educational experience and deep appreciation for our culture,” Saskia tells us. “The sessions are now operating on a monthly basis, rotating between the Brac Reef Beach Resort and Alexander Hotel, and best of all it’s free. This month’s instructor will be Mrs. Annalee Ebanks with thatch plaiting.”
This one’s at Brac Reef on Wednesday, 17 October, and then at Alexander Hotel on Tuesday, 23 October from 3.30 to 5pm. Sign up by e-mailing [email protected] or just reserve a spot with front desk staff at the hotels. Easy!
Future events include a craft market on Friday, 19 October at Brac Reef Beach Resort from 4 to 6.30pm and a Heritage House Kids’ Day on Saturday, 20 October with a special spooky theme.
