Acclaimed Navajo Weaver Nanabah Aragon presents sandpainting workshop
Dine (Navajo) weaver Nanabah Aragon will be presenting a special two-day sand-paining workshop, in which she will teach you the basics of Navajo Sandpainting as you learn the techniques passed on from her people and create your own sandpainting.
Nanabah is a Master Navajo traditional weaver who was declared a “Living Treasure” by the State of Arizona. After being sent off to a government school at a young age, she learned from her mother how to weave using traditional techniques, and she continues that tradition to this day. Nanabah’s weavings have been on display at the Heard Museum in Phoenix and at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.
Cost of the two-day sandpainting workshop is $125.00, which includes all materials. At the end of the class, you will have a sandpainting that you created to take home.
* Due to space limitations, this workshop is limited to six people.
Applications are available online (at left, or via text link below), and are also available in the Museum Store.
