Applications are now being accepted for a Navajo weaving class at Shepherd’s Cross in Claremore.
“Class size will be extremely limited — no more than eight people — so anyone interested needs to enroll as soon as possible,” said Dr. Diane Dickinson, Shepherd’s Cross owner.
Students will learn the finer art of learning a Navajo weave and upon completion of the class, take home a Navajo woven project of their own.
“During the course of the class, which is a weekend retreat, participants will learn the history of fiber arts and practical techology of Navajo weaving,” Dr. Dickinson said. “Additionally, participants will be given a design for building their own loom to bring with them (to the class).
“Persons attending the class may bring their own Navajo loom or borrow one of ours,” she said.
Yarn for the class will be provided.
Shepherd’s Cross’s Navajo weaving class will be 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 11 through Friday, Jan. 13 at the ranch, located at 16792 E. 450 Road in north Claremore. For more information, call 918-342-5911.
