I have just posted our class schedule for next year. Once again, we will have three sessions of our popular weaving class and tour. The dates for those classes are
- May 2-9, 2010
- July 26-August 1, 2010
- October 2-9, 2010
You can find more information and a link to enroll on the class page.
We will also offer our Advanced Weaving Seminar (aka Camp Weave-Alot) August 2-7, 2010 (Monday-Saturday). This class is an opportunity for concentrated study of advanced topics with two master weavers, Jennie Slick and Liz Munk.
Our class on Navajo vegetal dyeing, Natural Dyes the Navajo Way, will run August 2-4, 2010 (Monday afternoon-Wednesday evening). This class can be combined with the Advanced Seminar for those interested.
Jennie Slick and I will also be teaching our Navajo Weaving Boot Camp workshop at the Handweaver’s Guild of America’s Convergence 2010 conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The conference is scheduled to run from July 18-25, 2010, but the Boot Camp schedule is not yet final. I’ll update you when it is. Please let me know if you’re interested in attending and I’ll work with the HGA to expedite that.
I am also working on developing a new class with the Spider Rock Girls. Tentiatively called the Spider Rock Girls Boarding School, it will be based in Chinle and part of the weaving time will be spent at Spider Rock. Look for details on this class in the next few weeks, but it will be more expensive than our current classes because of the logistics involved in getting people and looms in and out of the canyon and the expense of accommodations in Chinle. If you are interested in the class, please contact me and I’ll keep you updated as we progress with the planning.
2010 will be our 13th year of teaching weaving the Navajo way and our classes have grown from one per year to five plus. Ahé’hee’ (thank you from the bottom of our hearts) for your participation and support.
