Learn to Weave! May Weaving in Beauty Class Has An Opening, Natural Dye Retreat Update

Put yourself in this picture starting on May 2!

Tempe, AZ One of the students scheduled to attend our May 2-9 class in Window Rock has had to cancel because of a serious illness in her family, leaving us with an open seat for the class.  This session is particularly good for people interested in the auction scene because it includes field trips to both the Crownpoint Rug Auction and the Friends of Hubbell Native American Arts Auction in addition to our regular weaving curriculum.  You can click here for more information on the class and you can click here to register online.  Please contact me if you have questions.

In other Weaving in Beauty class news, we have modified the Natural Dye Retreat to a one and half day format and reduced the price to $200 per student.  The change means that we concentrate exclusively on the dye work and don’t do any trading post field trips, but these can be done independently.  The retreat is scheduled for August 7-8 (7:30 AM Saturday- 1:00 PM on Sunday).  You can read more about the retreat here.  If you already know that you want to pay to dig holes, wash pots and eat smoke, you can register for the class here.  I love the small of cochineal in the morning.
