Navajo Weaving Workshop
June 26-30, 2017
M-F 9:00 – 4:00 each day

For the last week of June 2017 Navajo Master Weaver Anita Hathale will join us at Crow’s Shadow to lead a week-long weaving workshop. Participants will each receive a hand-made loom to work on during the week and keep for continued weaving. Anita’s designs range from traditional patterns to original, contemporary designs. This range of styles demonstrates her wonderful technical craftsmanship, and allows plenty of room for new creativity which she encourages her students to pursue.

Anita grew up on the Navajo reservation in Utah and tended to her family’s sheep as a child. She was fascinated by her mother’s weaving and eventually learned all about the weaving process, from shearing the sheep to carding, spinning and dying the wool, and finally making beautiful traditional weavings on a loom.

Class fee: $350
($50 non-refundable registration fee, balance due at beginning of workshop)
Fees include a personal loom to keep, and use of basic weaving supplies; additional hand-made tools will be available to purchase for moderate prices.

Several scholarships are available to tribal members, contact us for details, or to reserve your spot at 541-276-3954.
