Learn the basics of weaving in the Navajo way or gain more experience  with master weaver Jennie Slick and her assistant, Mary Walker   This three day boot camp workshop is taught in a beautiful setting at the Utah State University Training facility on the shores of  Bear Lake, near the borders of Utah and Idaho.   The workshop begins on the evening of June 21 and continues until the afternoon of the 24th.  Tuition of $310 includes all weaving supplies except the loom, handouts, lodging for three nights and four days and meals, drinks and snacks, including extremely large amounts of raspberry jam made from actual raspberries.   Small Navajo looms are available for purchase or build your own with free plans that we’ll send you.  A $50 non-refundable registration fee is required to hold a spot in the boot camp.  You can register for the class at the Weaving in Beauty Mercantile.

For more information or to register, contact Deby Pendleton or Mary Walker.   Nine places are currently open in the workshop.
