Porfirio Gutierrez, artist, master weaver and advocate comes from a long line of traditional Zapotec weavers from Teotitlan del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico where his family is still dedicated to this art. He is returning this summer as the CAM Studio Gallery Artist in Residence where he will offer a series of weaving workshops to the community.
Don't miss out on the amazing opportunity to learn directly from a master weaver! The class will focus on the Zapotec weaving history, design elements and weaving process. Students create a small weaving using a hand loom, plant and insect dyed yarn by master dyer Juana Gutierrez. Student’s work will be displayed in the CAM Gallery Studio.
