CHIMAYO WEAVING with Lisa Trujillo
The workshop is primarily an introduction to the fundamental techniques of shuttle and tapestry weaving that are necessary to weave in the Chimayo style, our local New Mexican weaving tradition. The workshop also introduces concepts underlying the logic of Chimayo designing. This local New Mexican weaving style is traditionally done on Rio Grande walking looms, which will be pre-warped for this class. Baby wolfs looms will be available for students who require a seated loom. Please let us know at the time of registration.
Materials students should provide: You will need to provide your weft yarn, which can be purchased at EVFAC. Bring a lunch or plan to visit local restaurant.
Lisa Trujillo’s work has received numerous awards at Spanish Market and other venues and is part of collections around the world. She married into the Trujillo family and is a part of its eight generations of weavers in the historic Rio Grande style of Northern New Mexico. Lisa is a master weaver and teacher.
