What to Expect:

Traditionally, pompoms of this style are attached to the ends of headdresses in the small highland town of Chajul, and are used to adorn women’s hair with bursts of color. They hang beautifully and are just so darn adorable. This class is appropriate for adults and children working together with adults. Join the fun as a family if you’d like!

Expect a calm atmosphere in a private Antigua-style garden. The workshop is held by a local and translation services can be provided upon request.
