Children can learn Maya weaving at Anthropology Museum

Maya weaving will be the focus of a children’s program called “Story in a Maya Loom” to be presented at Wake Forest University’s Museum of Anthropology on May 6.

Children and their parents will have the opportunity to handle Maya objects, learn about the Maya backstrap loom and practice simple weaving. Museum Educator Kim Robertson will lead the program. She will also guide participants through the exhibit, “Images of the Maya,” which is on loan from the Florida Museum of Natural History through June 9.

The program runs from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and is free and open to the public.

The Museum of Anthropology is located behind the track stadium on the Wake Forest University campus. For more information, please call 758-5282.
