Spend six quiet days with master weavers Jennie Slick and Liz Munk and dyer Mary Walker in a class designed to advance your knowledge of Navajo techniques and dyes. This class is intended to give you the opportunity delve into new areas and larger projects with the support of master weavers. No planned field trips and classroom is closed to outside interruptions. Located near the Navajo Nation Museum, Hubbell Trading Post and other research resources. At your option, you may spend time with Mary Walker perfecting your natural dye skills using both native and non-native materials.
Participants are expected to be able to warp and set up their own looms, but need not do so before the start of the seminar. You will have access to any and all necessary equipment. Local weavers are encouraged to visit and may participate when their time allows.
