Samuel Bautista Lazo is a Zapotec (Benizaa) weaver from Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico. He is visiting California to share his family’s weaving heritage, the Indigenous way of life, and the cultural craft of the Zapotec people. Samuel will present interpretations of the woven knowledge encoded in the ancient symbols and patterns of Zapotec textiles, natural dye/coloring methods, and weaving techniques taught on a small frame loom. Students will create a small woven tapestry or hatband. Wool yarns provided.
