Knitting on Mayan Loom

A great start to Women’s Empowerment Workshops in our new 15 de Julio location!  Celia Magnasco taught the women how to knit scarves using a Mayan Loom. The women worked in 3 different groups to take turns making their scarves, which they will continue to work on at the next workshop in September. If the women want to try their new skill at home, all the necessary materials are accessible near Huaycán, and Celia explained that the loom can even be constructed by hand with just a piece of wood and nails!
