I had a Latvian weaving student in a recent class. She lived in Latvia until she was four and then left. She is in her seventies and has been spending half her year there and half of it in the US. There is a community of weavers and a large weaving studio that she works at when she is there. The looms are over a hundred years old and the women are all in their eighties. Here's the thing...there are no younger people wanting to learn weaving there. She's not sure if it's like that in the weaving studios around the country, but she is worried that the weaving culture is going to die out. Has anyone been to Latvia and seen the weaving studios? Seems like there ought to be people out there who want to help study and preserve their traditions. Anyone else aware of this?
