Navajo Cultural Arts Programs hosts beading workshop
The Navajo Cultural Arts Program at Diné College started its next workshop series with a class that taught participants how to bead on Sept. 6 at the college's south campus in Shiprock.
Participants learned to bead using looms and size 10 seed beads. By the end of the session, each one would have made a bracelet.
Dawayne Bahe, who led the workshop, learned how to bead from his aunts when he was in the seventh grade.
He said if the participants enhance their skills, they can eventually bead without using a loom.
The program's next beading workshop will be Oct. 4 at Diné College's main campus in Tsaile, Arizona.
