The Pueblo weaving tradition is the oldest surviving Pueblo art form in existence today. This workshop will explore a brief history of Pueblo textiles from the ancestral period to the present. Participants will warp the loom to make a traditional Pueblo garter using the plain warp-faced method. Students will also learn how to spin yarn on a traditional Pueblo spindle. Time and interest allowing, students will have the opportunity to complete a second project in the floated warp technique. The bands made in class can be used in many ways from hair ties, lanyards, dog leashes, key chains, belts, etc.
