Introduction:
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.

Goals of this workshop:
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:
- Gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the ancient art of Pueblo weaving
- Learn traditional Pueblo spinning and yarn preparation
- Learn to be respectful of cultural and intellectual property rights
- Learn to recognize and identify some of the main types of Pueblo textiles
- Complete two projects
