We had the pleasure
of another Hopi Basketweaving class at Arcosanti. The baskets are
woven with strands of Yucca, which is a native cactus plant growing in
the desert around Arcosanti. [Photo & text: SA]

The teacher, Joyce
Saufkie, is from the village of Shongopovie on second Mesa. She was
teaching the 5-day class to a group of
residents and workshoppers. Soren Manillen, who is a
Construction volunteer and Foundry worker Anna Raup, are enjoying the learning
process under Joyces tutalage. [Photo & text: SA]

This is a tedious
effort and complete concentration is needed for good results. [left
