Program Description

Event Description

November is Indigenous Peoples' Month. The National Congress of American Indian writes: “The month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people." The Native American art form, finger weaving is used mostly to create belts, sashes, straps, and other similar items through a non-loom weaving process. Unlike loom-based weaving, there is no separation between weft and warp strands, with all strands playing both roles. Join us as we learn about Indigenous People around the world and how to create your own pieces using finger weaving.
