Woven Stories: Weaving Traditions of Northern New Mexico (a DVD)
Weaving in Northern New Mexico has joined three distinct cultures into a human tapestry with a common love of fiber and spirit of place. These traditions continue in the small communities of Mora, Taos, Tierra Amarilla, El Rito, Española, Truchas, and Chimayo, each one bringing a specific contribution to the art and practicality of fiber.
This film was produced by Andrea Heckman. Andrea has a PhD in Anthropology Art History from UNM. She is an author, an award-winning documentary producer, and owner of Andean Software (clothing and textiles from the Andes) in Taos. She has lived in New Mexico for 35 years. This film was shown for the first time at the Taos Wool Festival in 2011.
Meeting is 9:30 am - Noon
