Native Fiber Artisan Mountain Retreat
Registration is being coordinated through the Toadlena Trading Post web site. Per the description on their site:
“The week-long retreat will be a healing experience which will include an opening & closing ceremony. Irene will conduct lessons on Navajo Churro Sheep and sheepherding techniques along with stories of sheepherding, and a Tobacco Ceremony for the Sheep. The participants will participate in early morning and evening prayers and engage in Talking Circles. The participants will also be engaged in various classes to weave a Navajo rug which will include wool carding, spinning, and weaving. For extra activities, the participants will learn Navajo open fire cooking (fry-bread & tortillas & blue corn mush), will take nature walks, and pick herbal Navajo tea. At the end of the week, participants will leave with their own Navajo-style rug.”
Cost for the week is $875.
