Tonto shirtCarol James will be in town to recreate an ancient shirt that is now in the collection of the Arizona State Museum.  As part of her program, she will be working on the shirt in the lobby of the State Museum (U of A campus) and giving a public lecture on the recreation of the shirt.  Joining Carol in the program will be archaeologist Laurie Webster.  Laurie will give a history of the textile itself — how it came to be in the collection and why the museum is having this shirt reproduced.

This free presentation will be held on Friday, February 20th at 2:30 at the Martha Cooper Branch of the Tucson Public Library.  This is a central location with plenty of free parking.

Directions are here:  http://www.library.pima.gov/locations/mid/

Carol will also be giving two days of workshops in the Tucson area on March 6th and 7th (see non-THSG Events tab).  They are very reasonably priced, and Carol is a very patient teacher.  The technique she uses to recreate the shirt is called Sprang.  That is the technique she will teach to beginners in the workshops.  If you are interested, please contact Maddie Tsurusaki at msmarplescat@gmail.com
