Returning to Spirit: Chilkat and Ravenstail Weavings of the Northwest Coast

Venue: Burke Museum
Event Phone: (206) 543-5590
Admission Price: Free
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is an ancient geometric weaving style that predates Chilkat and is characterized by white, yellow and black designs originally made using pure mountain goat wool.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. Join Lily and Ursala as they share these ceremonial weavings, as taught by their late mother, acclaimed Tlingit weaver and culture bearer Clarissa Rizal. They will touch on the kinetic and visual artistry, distinct revitalization journeys and historical teachings of the Chilkat and Ravenstail weavings.
There are no events happening in the near future.
