One of the participants in our seminar completed her first rug today. Barbara Spelman is an accomplished fiber artist and a partner in Crone Craft Studios in Tucson, Arizona, which makes her a busy person. Once a year, Barbara comes to Window Rock to study Navajo techniques and has applied many of them to her other work, particularly in the area of dyes. Over the course of the past four years, Barbara has diligently worked on her weaving when she could and today, her efforts were rewarded. Here’s a brief video of the big moment!
Barbara carefully folded her rug, and she and Jennie Slick promptly started on another warp. Tomorrow, we’ll catch up with the other seminar participants projects.
