Deposit for Antigua Textile Week: January 2023

Antigua Textile Week (January 8 - 14, 2023)

Join us in January 2023 for a truly intimate and hands-on week of textile workshops from the comfort of our beautiful hometown, Antigua Guatemala. 

Mornings are filled with creative traditional fiber arts workshops, afternoons are free after lunch together for exploring the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City on your own (don't worry, we'll give you plenty of suggestions for places to visit!). Come learn from our partner master makers in a safe small-group setting, with workshops held in our open-air courtyard and other open areas. This is a great option for the independently-minded traveler who enjoys taking some time on their own to explore and take it all in. The slow pace will allow for plenty of creative happenings!
