Backstrap weaving, an enduring form of weaving has been practiced in countries such as Peru, Guatemala, Japan and Mexico.  In Guatemala, children learn to weave around age 7.  Students in this class will receive their very own, simplified backstrap loom along with a handcrafted, wooden shuttle. Students will also weave with beads!  With fun, brightly colored, shiny beads, students will design and weave armbands or bracelets and a necklace.
