Learn about Guatemalan textiles from Doña Lidia: Brocade Figures / Saturday April 10, 1-2pm Guatemala time
We're dedicating an hour to learn about the specific brocade figures from Doña Lidia's hometown of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. We often receive questions from our weaving class participants about the meaning behind traditional figures like mosquitos and semillas, as well as the chosen colors used for weaving them. Well, this is your opportunity to have your questions answered directly by one of the most experienced weavers around.
This class will be held on Saturday, April 10th, from 1-2pm Guatemala time (CST). Please check the time difference from where you are.
We will be looking at different huipiles, tzutes, and fajas.
Have your questions ready! This will be an opportunity to get first-hand input from Doña Lidia! Her English is strong, but if needed, Mari will be available to translate and facilitate communication.
We will also be showcasing some items for sale, and we can facilitate all logistics like payment and shipping.
Details will be sent via email the day before the class, including the link to the Zoom meeting.
