Learn the ancient Mayan art of back-strap weaving. Back-strap weaving is at once a delicate and beautiful art form, highly portable (you can tie it to any post, tree, or even a nail in the wall), and wonderfully diverse. With this form of weaving you can make original table runners, scarves, place mats, curtains, shawls, table clothes, and much more. Students will learn to warp the thread and set up a loom, and then to weave a small table runner with some traditional Mayan designs. The thread (many colors are available), loom, warping board, needle, back-strap, and tie cord are all included in the materials fee. Please note this art form requires students to bend over a loom for extended periods.
