Weaving on the Road

Jennie Slick and I will be doing a Navajo Weaving Boot Camp at Friendly Crossways Conference Center in Harvard, Massachusetts starting tomorrow evening.  The boot camp is an intensive three day workshop on Navajo weaving that we’ve been doing for the last six years.  Jennie always takes her C-Cactusflower loom with her and gets busy working wherever we are.  The little weaving that she’s working on will probably be sold by the time we return to Arizona next week.  We’ll keep you posted on the workshop at Friendly Crossways over the next few days.

In the meantime, here’s a picture of Jennie with the Ganado Red piece that she’s weaving.

    I really hope you will start the online study group.

    Hi, Courtney! Thank you for your interest in Navajo techniques. I don’t know of anyone teaching this style of weaving in Louisiana, but if you contact a weaving guild near you, they may be able to help. You can find a listing of Louisiana guilds at http://www.textilelinks.com/guild/la.html. I’m also thinking of forming an online study group for Navajo techniques.

    Hi, I’m an art teacher and an artist who has recently taken up the medium of fibers (since Katrina). Right now I do a lot of hand knitting but have always been interested in Navajo weaving (i’m originally from Arizona) and am interested in taking a course. I know that you are full for this summer but it there another intensive I may sign-up to take or a teacher in Louisiana.
    Thank you,
