Baja Weavers


One of the highlights of our trip to Baja (which I’ll be blogging about all week!) was visiting Artesanias Cuauhtemoc, a family run weaving studio in La Paz. Not sure if I’ve mentioned it here, but I’ve been taking a weaving class for the last three months and am almost done with my first project – a table runner! So when we stumbled into the weaving room with upwards of 10 large looms built into the architecture, I almost passed out.

Form meets function in the airy weaving studio.

Boxes of colorful yarn ready to become a wall hanging.

A nearly completed project.

There is a shop just outside of the studio, stocked with stacks of vivid rugs, tapestries, bedspreads, table linens, scarfs and dresses, many of which are made on site.

This piece came back to LA with us.

And this one…

Inspiring colors and designs got me thinking about my next weaving project.

I love the Baja weavers! Can’t wait to visit again. Since starting weaving lessons, I’m reminded how satisfying it is to make things and also how much I love having a hobby. What’s your hobby?
