Indigenous Crafts (most are from Cordillera)

I taught Indigenous Creative Crafts last semester (it's an elective subject in college). Basically aside from creating indigenous crafts using easily available materials (not to undervalue the precious materials that is supposed to be used but to make it student friendly, for example is replacing glass beads with plastic beads or even beads made out of magazines), the course is about teaching the students to understand the underlying context of Indigenous crafts and even the materials itself.

  • They're not for sale po, I'm discouraging my students to sell anything that is not part of their culture to avoid cultural misappropriation po. Most of my students are Tagalog, tho I have one Igorot student. His work is a choker from Bontoc, the one with big and colorful beads (made of plastic). If you're interested, I can ask him if how much he'll sell it.
