Guatemala Textile Weaving Workshops

The Guatemalan Weaving Workshops offer a rare opportunity to learn from a community of Indigenous Tz’utujil women who are living on and managing their traditional lands.

The strength, love and dignity of the Tz’utujil people will deeply touch you as they guide you in learning this ancient craft.

The teaching is conducted as it has been for generations in the traditional Tz’utujil community of San Juan.

So roll up your sleeves and get ready for this one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience, under the guidance of master weavers as you learn how to make and spin the thread, dye it, and then weave the thread using traditional, handmade looms.

The Village of San Juan Lake Atitlan

After arriving in San Juan at the boat docks you climb a steep hill that has unique textile, painting, and art stalls on either side of the street. Most of these products are produced by cooperatives of women from the village. The art here is very unique and unlike what you find in other villages around the lake. You also see many murals painted on the side of buildings throughout San Juan that are an expression of their culture.
