PARK HILL, OKLAHOMA – For centuries the Cherokee people have used a variety of materials to weave items of necessity and art. On Saturday, April 24, the fine art of weaving with yarn will be taught at the Cherokee Heritage Center by artist Mary Adair.
The center, devoted to the preservation and promotion of Cherokee history and culture, has designed a series of Traditional Art Classes. Each class focuses on a unique aspect of Cherokee culture and is taught by knowledgeable and experienced teachers.
Classes in traditional Cherokee art are primarily geared for adult audiences. Each class is $40 per student and the fee includes tuition and materials. All classes are held at the Cherokee Heritage Center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch will not be provided. Early registration is encouraged as class sizes are limited.
