Private Class: Backstrap Weaving with Doña Lidia (in-person) / Email us to schedule
//This is a private outdoor weaving class held at our studio garden in central Antigua for either one or two students. Spanish, English, and Kaqchikel instruction are possible by Doña Lidia. COVID safety protocols are observed and the exact address will be shared upon registering. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to our WhatsApp at +502 5191 1991 to coordinate the date and time.//
We love one-on-one weaving sessions! This two-hour class includes our PDF guide for plain weave, which will be automatically sent to you upon the purchase of this session. If you'd like to get more into the details of supplementary weft brocade or even the advanced double-sided brocade, that is also possible.
Doña Lidia is able to teach up to two students at a time. Choose in the drop-down menu if this for one or two people.
Doña Lidia is from San Antonio Aguas Calientes and has been teaching backstrap weaving nationally and internationally for several decades. She is a wealth of knowledge and a patient teacher with experience teaching in English.
Please join us with your backstrap loom ready to go. Need a loom? No worries, we have several looms reserved for class use, and other offerings for you to purchase and take home at our studio! Everything is 20% off when purchased in-person, making looms affordable starting at 240Q.
We recommend morning instruction from 10am-12noon to avoid harsh sun and rain.
This session includes a small snack.
Note: If Doña Lidia is not available for your requested date, we may be able to coordinate with a different excellent teacher, Doña Everilda.
