Demos of Chilkat and Ravenstail Weavings by Lily Hope and Ursala Hudson

Venue: Burke Museum
Event Phone: (206) 543-5590
Admission Price: Included with admission
Join us for demonstrations of the Chilkat and Ravenstail weaving traditions by Native Alaskan weavers Lily Hope and Ursala Hudson. Hope and Hudson will chat with visitors while they weave robes in the Chilkat and Ravenstail styles. They will be demonstrating these weavings on two looms set up in the Burke Museum lobby.

Ravenstail is an ancient geometric weaving style that predates Chilkat and is characterized by white, yellow and black designs originally made using pure mountain goat wool. The Chilkat weaving style evolved from Ravenstail in the early 19th century and incorporated more complex weaving techniques that allowed the weaver to depict curvilinear formline designs. Both styles of weaving continue to be practiced today and require expert skill, often taking a journey of over a year to complete a single robe.

On April 5th, Lily and Ursala will pause the weaving demonstrations to host a free afternoon lecture open to the public from 1:30 - 3:00pm! Join us for free lectures with Lily Hope and Ursala Hudson on April 4 at 6:30 pm and on April 5th at 1:30pm!
There are no events happening in the near future.
