Beginning Navajo Weaving with Barbara Teller Ornelas & Lynda Teller Pete (AUG 25–27)
Beginning Navajo Weaving AUG. 25–27 (THURS.–SAT., 9–4)
Barbara and Lynda invite you to journey with them into the exquisite world of Navajo tapestry weaving. Often referred to as national treasures, these two sisters will guide you step by step through Navajo tapestry techniques and traditions, honoring their heritage and sharing their authentic way of life. You’ll be provided with sample ideas, designs, a pre-warped loom, yarn, and the full array of Navajo weaving tools to successfully weave a rug that measures approximately 6.5" high x 8.5" wide from start to finish. You’ll leave with a deeper appreciation for these talented women and their culture, along with a beautifully woven rug of your own and a printed booklet.
Navajo looms for each class are situated atop tables and are adjustable. The Navajo looms and tools you’ll be provided in class are available for purchase afterwards. No outside looms allowed.
Skill Level: The first workshop is for beginners, no experience necessary. Intermediate and advanced workshops each require previous tapestry weaving experience and warping knowledge.
