Imagine yourself weaving at the base of ancient ruins in the Navajo tradition. Canyon de Chelly has long been one of my favorite places on earth. The quiet sacredness of the land seeps into one’s soul and transforms them forever. Passing through its towering sandstone portals is like entering the gates to another world. Massive cliffs dominate over the wide dry riverbeds lined with olive and tamarisk trees. Seemingly around every corner, tucked into the sheer walls, lie timeworn ruins and countless petroglyphs. You can almost hear the voices of the ancients and the laughter of children. Maybe it’s because Canyon de Chelly is one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes of North America; a landscape composed of places infused with collective memory. It is truly one of the most magical places I have visited on this earth.
Our weaving adventure in Canyon de Chelly, taught by 5th generation Navajo weavers Lynda Teller Pete and Barbara Teller, are such a privilege. It is so amazing, that we are offering it for a third time! Join us April 15 – 24, 2015 for an epic textile experience like no other. Click here to watch a short video.
