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.
