July 23, 2016 Ft. Payne: Fingerweaving Workshop

Serious Skills Series:
Finger Weaving Workshop

Hosted by DeSoto State Park
The Serious Skills series is a variety of classes and workshops that provide opportunities to discover a hidden talent or learn a new skill for personal enrichment. Classes are open to local residents, overnight guests and park visitors.
Fingerweaving is a Native American art form used mostly to create belts, sashes, straps, and other similar items through a non-loom weaving process. Some patterns and color combinations were originally restricted to certain societies or clans, while others were available for general use by all. Belts, sashes, leg bands, capes, gun straps, even dresses, shirts, and pants were created by the sometimes intricate patterns and methods.

Learn the basics of this old craft with a long history with instructor Keena Graham. She will demonstrate and teach the 3 styles of finger weaving: the "four" method, cardboard loom weaving, and the "three
columns" method. Students will be asked to work on a project using one of the methods. All materials will be furnished.
