“Our family has been weaving rugs for generations. Although our home on the Navajo Nation is one of the most beautiful places in the world, it isn’t an easy place to live. Weaving has meant a lot to our family and has helped us pay for food, clothing and education.”
The family has weaver as young as 8 years old and college students paying their way through school by weaving. Come meet this extraordinary family and learn about their approach to both traditional and innovation weaving techniques and patterns. Members of the family will demonstrate traditional Navajo weaving techniques and tools and will answer questions about their weaving and other arts. They will give a special presentation for children at 11:30, in conjunction with the Museum of Art’s weekly story time. The program is free and open to the public.
