Stunning tapestries represent a rich history of spirit and art. Don’t miss a unique opportunity to study this ancient skill.  

Join fifth-generation Navajo weaver Barbara Teller Ornelas for a three-day hands-on weaving workshop.  

Barbara grew up weaving Two Grey Hills tapestries and has been teaching weaving for 17 years.  She loves to exchange cultural traditions and to share stories as she shows students the basics of Navajo Weaving. WNPA invites you to share in her passion. Classes will be limited to 10 students to maximize the time Barbara can spend with each participant. Looms are provided and are pre-warped so that students can begin to weave right away. Don’t miss this great holiday gift for weavers! Students should expect to leave with an 8” x 14” Navajo-style weaving. $490 members $530 non-members. Price includes all materials, handbook, and lunches. Limited to 10 students
