    Baguio: Easter Weaving Room, Easter School, Episcopalian Church

    There's a place near downtown Baguio where you can witness how traditional fabric is woven by the Igorots of the Cordilleras; where you can buy native cloths for home or design your own fashion statement and also snap up Baguio souvenirs and handicrafts made the traditional way: Easter Weaving Room, located in the same compound as the Philippine Episcopalian Church.

    Easter Weaving Room is an institution more than a hundred years old that's been nurturing the age-old tradition of manual fabric manufacturing as well as provide livelihood to locals. It's also a souvenir shop where various handicrafts, besides cloths and fabrics, are sold to tourists at not so touristy prices.

    Admission is free to Easter Weaving Room (no entrance fee) and is open 7 days a week but sorry, Tutubi wasn't able to get the exact opening and closing times plus contact numbers for you to call...probably next time.

    It's a place where you can witness age-old spindles weaving cloths and fabrics by natives and can also buy the hand-crafted products, souvenirs and Baguio pasalubong all in one roof (including the infamous barrel man)

    How to get to Easter Weaving School Room | Easter School Baguio

    Driving Directions: From Baguio plaza, head to Abanao then turn right to Bokawkan Road. Turn left to Easter Road where the Easter Weaving School and the Philippine Episcopalian Church is located on your right about 500 meters from the corner of Bokawkan Road.

    Commute to Easter Weaving Room:

    From around Burnham Park, look for jeepneys with signboard Baguio Plaza-Quezon Hill-Tam-awan Village and request the driver to drop you off in front of the school, souvenir shop and Episcopalian Church.

    We bought (and framed) two pieces of cloth with jar design (for luck daw) from there. There are many such cloth with jar designs anywhere in Baguio but what is special in the ones we bought is the Easter Weaving Room insignia sewn in them.

    Extra Tip: mura at masarap ang pagkain sa tapat ng Easter Weaving Room, if the eatery is still in there, that is.

    Baguio is one of the interesting and wonderful place in the Philippines. Aside from it's climate, and wonderful spots there...all the native clothes and souvenirs are really amazing. Their handicrafts were made by the Igorots.

    sad but true, baguio ain't that cold anymore and unless you're in the middle of camp john hay or brent school, you won't experience the soothing scent of pine trees. i miss the old baguio too. FYI : easter weaving room is open from 8am-5pm and the eatery nearby no longer exists. and i love your website! more power
