Fingerweaving Workshop

September 21st, 2019 1:00 PM - September 22nd, 2019 - 5:00 PM

Workshop, Fingerweaving

Shannon Turner will lead a two-day fingerweaving workshop at the Shawnee Tribe Cultural Center on September 21 and 22. The workshop will begin after the tribe’s annual meeting and continue Sunday. Specializing in an oblique or interface weave, Shannon often makes garments for living history programs. Shawnee ancestors traded for wool yarn and made items such as sashes, knee garters, hair garters, straps, and bags. In the workshop, Shannon will teach the basics of the oblique weave. Shannon enjoys using this technique to create items for family members, friends, and museums. Her goal is to teach Native people this style to see items being worn and used by members of dance grounds. Workshop space is limited. Please contact Natalie at (918) 544-6722 or [email protected] to reserve your space.
