Loom Set-Up Class with Doña Lidia / Saturday May 15, 10-11am Guatemala time
Join us for an introductory class on how to set up your own backstrap loom. This class assumes that you have already prepared your warp and have the materials necessary to build a backstrap loom - everything that is included in our Make Your Own Loom Kits. The set-up of pepenado sticks that facilitate supplementary weft brocade will also be covered.
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, May 15th, 10am - 11am Guatemala time from Doña Lidia's home. This is a special topic session suitable for weavers interested in the details of backstrap weaving.
An email with more details will be sent a few days before the class, including the Zoom meeting invitation. The class will be recorded and shared privately, so participants will be able to go back and review the material at their leisure.
