Enjoy learning and making two weaved bracelets with artist Raquel Kaprosy. Raquel is an indigenous Mayan Kaqchikel from Guatemala, where it is common for people to weave textiles by following mothers or grandmother’s example. Children are taught the basic pattern by starting with these simple bracelets, transitioning to more complicated or larger objects such as belts “fajas” or table clothes. This class is designed for kids 10-18 and their families. Craft supply kits will be available (free of charge) for pick-up July 9-July 23; pick-up instructions will be provided upon event registration.
Raquel has shown the Kaqchikel weaving techniques at the Saint Paul Landmark Center and at the Twin Cities PBS:TPT channel for the series “worn within”.
This class will also be posted on the website after July 24 for individuals to view and complete on their own schedule.
