Tailoring workshop

Josefi Corbacho is leading a tailoring workshop in the new Casa de la Juventud, in collaboration withthe Ayuntamiento, to produce costumes for the Toma de Gaucín. The aim is for enough people to make their own costumes so that all of the participants in the re-enactment of the re-taking of the village from the French in 1810 can be local residents, rather than having to rely on outside assistance.

The new calendar, Gaucín 2016, is now available in several shops in the village.
The creator, Inma Prieto, says:
"This time I wanted to show everything that is good about people in harmony with nature, the rivers, the mountains, the trees, the Sierra del Hacho, the golden sunset, fog, and, finally, a rainbow; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it."
