PTRI’s very own weaver, Ms. Teresita Valencia from the Technical Services Division, showcased her weaving skills in an interactive exhibit organized by The Learning Tree, a private primary school in Quezon City. Entitled ‘Dayo Tayo sa Lalawigan’, the exhibit aimed to highlight the beauty and richness of the culture in the provinces.

Through activities like this, PTRI is able to share with the general public the science and art of weaving.
