Tempe, AZ The listings for Sarah Natani’s 2011 weaving workshops have just been added to the Where to Learn Indigenous Techniques page. Sarah will be offering classes in Mendocino, California (June 13-17), at the Taos Wool Festival (September 26-30), at her home in Table Mesa, New Mexico (September 19-23) and at the Hill Creek Fiber Studio in Columbia, Missouri (November 13-18). Tuition for each class varies by venue.
At its core, Navajo weaving is totally self-sufficient, produced only with the materials and skills already in the possession of the weaver and students in Sarah’s classes will experience a glimpse of the full range of skills and activities that encompass weaving in that Navajo sense. From Sarah’s viewpoint, the process of weaving begins when a lamb is born and continues until the finished product goes on to the people who will ultimately use it. Sarah is a wonderful guide for that process.
