Navajo Weaving Techniques

July 8, 2018 – July 14, 2018

Melissa Cody

In this workshop students will learn traditional Navajo weaving techniques by setting up and weaving on a Navajo- style loom. You will warp the loom using continuous warping styles and prepare selvedge cording and twining with a traditional Navajo drop spindle. By creating a Navajo style weaving, students will broaden their repertoire while learning indigenous techniques of Native North America. To complete their final textile participants will weave using traditional tools. Open to all skill levels.
