Join us in welcoming Doña Lidia López de López to Textile Center for a special 4-day workshop on backstrap brocade weaving in the Mayan tradition.

Learn the basics of plain weaving on a backstrap loom, using your body to create tension. As you gain confidence in working with a backstrap loom, learn techniques for brocade weaving, incorporating a range of designs and colorful yarns. Explore strategies for fraying, twisting, and macrame which add to the beauty of this weaving tradition. Students will have the option to learn how to warp the backstrap loom on their own.

All levels welcome!
