Taniko–Twining or Finger Weaving taught by Doris Florig

This class teaches a traditional fiber twining technique used by the aboriginal people of New Zealand and American Indians of the northeast and Alaska.

Much like knitting, a taniko project can be worked on wherever the weaver goes. No equipment needed. Not even something as small as a knitting needle. All you need is your hands and yarn. You can create works of art or make functional pieces such as bags, scarves or other small articles of clothing or non-functional works of art.

Doris will provide all the materials for the class.
