Learn how to make traditional pompoms with Chato, our master pompom maker,  in our central Antigua studio garden!  We will have a variety of beautifully naturally-dyed cotton yarns to work with, and we'll go step-by-step from thread to pompom.

This two-hour class includes:

  • All materials including a variety of naturally-dyed cotton threads
  • Our PDF guide with pre-recorded videos and images for you to look back on after class. The  access will be automatically sent to you to the provided email upon the purchase of this class.
  • A light snack

Traditionally, pompoms of this style are attached to the ends of headdresses in the small highland town of Chajul, and are used to adorn women's hair with bursts of color. They hang beautifully and we think they are just so darn adorable.

We welcome interested creative children from 10 years on for our workshops! Please note that the parent or adult guardian will need to be responsible for children's participation. Fine motor skills are needed for every class, and children must be able to safely use sharp tools such as scissors and needles. We ask for maximum two children per one adult to ensure safe supervision.

In some cases, we may be able to accept younger children in a private setting with a few modifications to the class, and with the ratio of one adult per child. If interested in this option, please contact us.
