Half Day Backstrap Loom Weaving Class – $45/person
Travel from Antigua to the nearby town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes, where you’ll join a local weaver in her home for a lovely weaving presentation.
Once you’ve learned a little of the history of weaving in Guatemala, you will have a chance to weave a wall hanging of your own to take home, using a backstrap loom. All materials are included in the price and you can choose your background color when you book this class. Choose from white, black, red, light blue, dark blue, bright pink, bright yellow, purple or green.
After the class, our sweet hostess will serve a delicious traditional meal of pepian, a stew with chicken and vegetables, made with pumpkin seeds.
Price includes: transport to and from Antigua, all materials for weaving, and a meal.
Morning class: 9am-1pm
Afternoon class: noon-5pm
