This decorative embroidery technique is an art form practiced by many pueblo people and remains an essential component of pueblo life, especially during feast days when dancers wear embroidered kilts and mantas. During this Introduction to Pueblo Embroidery class, you will learn the fundamentals of graphing designs and pueblo embroidery techniques. Evelyn has agreed to teach this course to the general public with the idea of creating a circle of sewers who will not only learn the stitches to create these dramatic embroidered designs in red, black and green but share the joy of community.
Evelyn Naranjo comes from the Pueblo of San Ildefonso, her Tewa name is Than-Povi, which means Sunflower. In addition to teaching embroidery, she also teaches pottery, beadwork design and sewing traditional pueblo clothing. She is a passionate grandmother and enjoys passing her traditions to the next generation.
