Kids of the Loom
In 2013 Master Weaver Elsie Bia, along with her children and young grandchildren, visited the Nizhoni Ranch Gallery. She came to bring Steve her latest weaving.
Over the years we have watched the grandchildren grow. Each time Steve sees the grandkids he makes a point of asking when will they start to weave. Turns out March 2018 was the time. During the opening of our current show - Timeless Treasures of Two Grey Hills Natalie and Dylan brought their very own handmade looms and started their very first weaving!
No matter the age, all weavers are to make their own looms. Look closely and you will see Dylan's ingenuity and imagination.
With the influence of their Grandmother, we have no doubt they too will become Master Weavers in their own right!
