Learning to Weave/
Aprendiendo a Tejer

Descriptive Text as seen on the back of Learning to Weave/Aprendiendo a Tejer:

Within traditional societies, children often learn arts within the family setting. As they sit together and use a narrow loom, the younger girl can ask help from her sister. The ribbons,with their colorful patterns, are worn by the women and girls of their community as a decoration in their hair.

En las comunidades tradicionales con frecuencia los niños son instruidos en las artes por otros miembros de la familia. Cuando las hermanas se sientan juntas a trabajar, la más joven puede pedir ayuda de su hermana major. Las cintas con patrones muy coloridos que las niñas tejan son utilizadas por las mujeres de la comunidad para adornar sus cabellos.


"Honor the Traditional Maya Artists of Guatemala" series.

Shows different aspects of work done by the men and women who carry on the textile arts of Guatemala. These images were inspired by the creative artists and artisans who do the spinning, dyeing, warping, and other weaving processes to produce the Maya textiles admired throughout the world.
