Contemporary Handweavers

Featured are scenes from the handweaving demonstration at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The Contemporary Handweavers of Houston has a long association with the rodeo, every year demonstrating handweaving and spinning techniques using sheep and alpaca fiber. In the photos you'll see a four-harness loom, a frame loom like those used in Navajo weaving, and a spinning wheel.

  1. Cool! I want to learn to spin one day and weaving would be a fun thing to learn too!
