July 6 – Finger Weaving Class

Learn the intricate art of Native American Finger Weaving on Saturday, July 6th at 10 AM at Indian Steps Museum with skilled trainer and weaver, Mark Warfel, a Lenape Native American. Native Americans have developed from ancient origins unique techniques for the art of weaving. Finger weaving is a special technique which evolved in many parts of the world and was cultivated into a fine art by Native Americans. Eastern Woodland American Natives are well known for their finger woven yarn belts and sashes. Intricate examples exist today from this long tradition of finger weaving that has survived since the time of European contact. Finger woven items can measure from a few inches to more than five yards long. Don’t miss this opportunity!! All needed supplies are included with registration! This unique individualized class training is limited to just five (5) students. Please register soon. Allow several hours for training and your actual hands-on weaving work on Saturday, July 6th. Class begins at 10AM. (Price includes admission to Indian Steps Museum.)
Class Registration $25 per student (collected at time of event) $20 for CSYC Members .
