Alex Martinez is from a family of weavers from Oaxaca state in Mexico. Three generations are involved in the entire production, from raising the sheep to marketing the weavings. Alex will describe each step in their dyeing methods, which use mostly natural sources such as plants and insects.
Don’t miss the chance to see, and purchase, beautiful weavings of all sizes, and to hear a master weaver describe his family’s traditionally-rooted and ever-evolving artistic process, and some of the current realities of cross-border commerce. Suggested $5 dollar donation for the lecture.
