Navajo Beadworking


Learn the beautiful intricate art of Navajo beadworking with Lylah Jarvis! Students will create a pattern before weaving it onto a loom with beads utilizing a traditional method. Beadwork lends itself to creating intricate, colorful and beautiful designs that will be sewn onto leather for bracelets, barrettes, bags, purses, clothing, and moccasins or as your own original piece of work. Class is an all-day workshop and will include materials and the opportunity to purchase a beautiful handmade loom if you would like to continue beading at home.
