Fodor's Review

You can watch how the beautiful weavings of Guatemala are made at the Q'eqchí Women's Weaving Workshop. Every year small numbers of women come from their villages to live at the workshop, where they spend a year learning the age-old crafts of loom and belt weaving. Every woman who successfully completes the course is given a loom to take back to her village, and is encouraged to teach other women how to weave.
