Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture is excited to host a two-day workshop in which Master Weavers Francisco and Laura Bautista will teach participants dyeing and weaving techniques that originate from the Zapotecs, an indigenous community concentrated in the southern state of Oaxaca, Mexico, who are famous for their one-of-a-kind weaving traditions.
Registration is required and attendance is limited. Attendance to both days of the workshop is highly recommended. Registration covers both days of the workshop. A $25 fee will be charged at the time of registration to cover the cost of materials.
This workshop is intended for participants who have previous weaving experience. Attendees will have to supply their own loom.
