Join Barbara and Lynda on a journey of discovery. This are unique workshops taught by two sisters who will not only teach you how to weave using the authentic Navajo tapestry techniques, they will also share their way of life and Navajo traditions. Ideally students will be able to finish their rugs in class. Students will start weaving on pre-warped looms, so weaving begins immediately. The rug size is approximately 6.5" wide by 8.5" high. Barbara and Lynda will bring some sample designs, along with all the Navajo weaving tools needed for beginning and finishing.
The looms for this class are on tables and are adjustable. Looms and tools are available for use in class and for purchase. At the end of class, each student keeps their woven rug and a printed booklet.
Skill Level: The first workshops are for beginners, no experience necessary. The intermediate and advanced workshops require tapestry weaving experience and warping knowledge.
