The Beginner Plus-Intermediate Navajo Techniques class will help you to take your weaving skills beyond the beginner level and will help you to explore the creative world of patterns, colors and textures.  You'll see how to approach the design process as you develop your own distinctive style of weaving.  Each of the four bi-weekly classes will provide you with time in the classroom with your instructor as well as a 30 minute discussion of wool types, top weavers work, weaving history and, for our Navajo students, an introduction to marketing your work.  $100
