We really love visiting Canyon de Chelly! This year, we have a full itinerary planned, featuring a visit to the Durango Collection at Fort Lewis College. This very valuable and magnificent collection includes textiles woven in the Navajo, Pueblo and Hispanic traditions by both male and female weavers and represents more than 800 years of weaving.
Renowned trader, Jackson Clark I, who established Toh-Atin Gallery in 1957, and Mark Winter, who now owns the Toadlena Trading Post, originally purchased this amazing collation of the rich textile history of the Southwest.
We will have the exclusive opportunity to visit the seldom-seen vault to view these remarkable relics along with a private reception featuring renowned Southwest Historian, Dr. Andrew Gulliford, Ph.D. Other historic textile highlights of our Navajo Weaving Tour include a private reception with historian Jackson Clark II at his highly regarded galley Toh-Atin Gallery,and an exclusive visit to the Todalena Trading Post hosted by owner, and original co-founder of The Durango Collection ®, Mark Winter.
Our trip to Canyon de Chelly is from April 18 – 26, 2013. We limit this group to eight people and as of today only have three spots remaining! Please contact us through our website for more information or to book your space.
