At our Authentic Village, we offer basket weaving classes. The Mayas make their baskets from a palm they called the jipijapa. This material makes a mixture of light brown and dark brown fine fiber baskets.
Darlene Teck, ,Mopan Maya young lady, enjoys and take passion in continuing the traditions of her parents and ancestors. Darlene, most patiently, makes her baskets and other woven items everyday as a means of obtaining finance.
Most children, families and couples enjoy making baskets customized with their names. Join Darlene as she shares her ancestral knowledge of weaving and basket making.
