Workshop
Fingerweaving
5 August, 2020

Fingerweaving

Learn to fingerweaving

Participants will learn fingerweaving, a technique used by Native Americans to make tump lines, sashes and leg ties. We will focus on one technique, but other examples will be available for inspection.  A sash will take several days to complete, but a tump line or leg ties can easily be done in several hours. As long as I am at the event you can pick my brain and ask questions.

What are we going to do:

Fingerweaving history and use

Setting up the weave

Weaving the project

Finishing the ends

Timetable:

9 may 2021 at 9:30 am
Duration: The workshop will last 4 hour

Take the following with you:

Bring a knife

Kumihimo thread bobbins are extremely helpful when weaving to keep your threads from tangling. On Amazon 8 cost five dollars, but once you see this trick work you will find them priceless.

About The Speaker

Douglas grew up in Indiana, but his parents had a cabin in the woods on a lake in Kentucky, so he spent his weekends and summers in the woods. He found his first arrowhead when he was six and this fascination with Native American culture never stopped.

Douglas moved to North Carolina in High school and joined the Army before going to college. Unlike everyone else that was in the military, Douglas did not learn any real outdoor survival skills in the Army. Douglas went to college and majored in History and Anthropology. On a college field trip to the Schiele Museum, Douglas met Steve Watts. Read more >
