Tahoe site of Navajo weaving class

Staff reports

Genoa artist Charlotte Shroyer will teach a workshop on Navajo weaving techniques at Valhalla on the Tallac Historic Site, South Lake Tahoe, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Aug. 18 and 19.

Designed for both individuals with no weaving experience and those skilled in the craft, the class will provide instruction on basic tapestry weave techniques used by the Navajo weaver in the creation of traditional and contemporary rug designs.

Demonstrations on changing color within a design, forming Navajo side selvedges and warping a traditional Navajo loom will be included.

Each workshop participant will work on a prewarped loom and will take his or her woven sampler at completion of the class.

In addition to teaching workshops on specific fiber techniques, Shroyer also conducts workshops to help individuals find balance and harmony in their lives through the art and magic of the Americas.

The Tallac Historic Site is located on Highway 89 north of South lake Tahoe between Kiva Beach and Camp Richardson.

For more information and to register for the class, call Charlotte Shroyer at 782-7326 by today.
