We'll spend time in lovely old colonial Antigua, visit schools, try back strap weaving w a local family, visit Mayan market places, cook local food, and also travel to magical, mystical Lake Atitlan. It is gorgeous, an artistic inspiration, and located in the heart of the Mayan indigenous highlands. This workshop is appropriate for all who love the arts and want to combine learning with a rich cultural experience.

We base out of the beautiful old colonial capital of Antigua, with field trips, lectures by local experts, and demonstrations - along with a typical meal with a local family in a nearby village. We also go into Guatemala City for a behind the scenes special tour of Museo Ixchel, Guatemala's ethnic costume museum, as well as some magnificent fabric stores.

We also spend time in the western highlands - the heart of the Mayan indigenous world - and home to spectacularly gorgeous Lake Atitlan. We spend time in Santiago Atitlan and other lake villages, visiting weaver's cooperatives and learning about some of their inspiring community development projects. This tour is appropriate for appreciators of fine fabrics - as well as those who make them.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Price Includes:
- Many learning experiences/discussions with locals
- Lodging in a lovely colonial style BB
- A hearty breakfast each morning
- All ground transportation (including airport PU and travel to Lake Atitlan) and some pretty interesting cultural experiences.
