Here’s more about this exciting lecture:
“The work of Maya textile artists fascinates me, especially because our local community has welcomed Guatemalan refugees for a number of years. In this presentation we will follow the journey of one small village to bring back textile traditions to their young people and experience a visit to two rural indigenous communities where women are weaving for a Fair-Trade organization. We will also explore different kinds of weaving and embroidery so that you will understand what you are seeing in these striking Maya textiles.”
If you are interested in learning more from Diane Herrmann, we welcome you to explore her Individual Correspondence Course Techniques for Canvas Embroidery, an in-depth study of the various techniques used in canvas embroidery. Diane will also be teaching her class Diamond City Lights at our upcoming National Seminar: The Magnificent Stitch. Registration is now open, come stitch with us!
