April 21st we celebrate Earth Day and guild members creativity to repurpose items from their household to make materials, tools or for maintenance in their studios or use in art/weaving. It will be a fun time and I look forward to audience participation.
If you have items you repurposed or up-cycled please bring them to show in an Earth Day Trunk Show to wrap up the program.
Weaving the Navajo Way will be presented by Lynda, Teller Pete and Barbara Teller Omelas, two sisters who are 5th generation Navajo weavers from the Newcomb and Two Grey Hills area on the Navajo Nation. For more on these two sisters and their weaving see: http://www.navajorugweavers.com
