This year again, the Culture Council of the Ayuntamiento participated in the 31st Edition of the Island Handcraft Fair (FIA). The presentation by the Culture Council of what was created brought on some curiosity from visitors on the stand. Visitors also sampled products from the earth and were informed on their contents.
The theme this year was recycling and two dresses made from plastic bags were exhibited. The wedding dress «Boda Plastica» (plastic wedding) made almost entirely of large (industrial) waste bags, with a plaited bodice with feathers and pearl decorations, a large skirt with a bow as well as accessories: a hat made with feathers and a veil, a bouquet made with small plastic bags and red flowers made from recycled paper. The skirt lining was made from 100% cotton with a bias cut to create more volume. And there was a cocktail dress called «Plastic casual» knitted with two needles with industrial waste bags in black colour with the reverse in grey with the «Kumihimo» technique, with a finishing in silver colour as well as brooch of transparent zircon reused from the 60's and with a finishing of silk tassels. It was lined with black Terylene fabric and cups for the chest.

Soon various other safety measures will be added such as the improvement of the exterior fence, amongst others.
