The museum welcomes Navajo weavers from around the state on December 8th for an intimate marketplace from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Some of the best weaving in the Southwest will be on display and for sale by artists like Barbara Teller Onelas, Florence Riggs, Jane Hyden, LaVerne Greyeyes, Lynda Pete, Rena Begay and more! Enjoy the day visiting with generations of acclaimed artists and see the various styles of weaving that have become iconic collector items for art of the people of the Southwest.
Join us for a seasonal floral wreath workshop throughout the day with Shawna Shandiin Sunrise(Diné/Kewa). Participants will build a base hoop with greens and seasonal decorations and are encouraged to bring small ornamental objects both natural and handmade for their project. The workshop will provide base hoop, greens, wire and assorted ribbons. Shawna has over 15 years of experience and is currently embarking on an independent floral design business based on her creative process called Nizhónígo Anílééh (Make It Beautiful) designs. “I utilize the same creative process in weaving as I do on each arrangement” says Sunrise.
