Online weaving class with Doña Lidia / October 10, 9-10am (2020)
Join us for a one-hour introductory class on the art of backstrap weaving with master weaver Doña Lidia! This is the first of hopefully many online classes, and as such is being offered at a special rate.
Doña Lidia has been teaching backstrap weaving nationally and internationally for many years. She is a wealth of knowledge and a patient teacher with experience teaching in English.
This class will be held via Zoom on Saturday, October 10th, 9-10am Guatemala time from Doña Lidia's home. Following the hour of demonstration, we will be featuring a live bazaar with handwoven items for sale, which will be an excellent opportunity to purchase woven beauties directly from Doña Lidia and her family in San Antonio Aguas Calientes. We will organize all logistics like payments and shipping.
