Taos Class: Pick Me Up

print

AAAAAAAwsome. My students were amazing: They mastered weft floats, warp floats, and then put it all together in a window pane pattern of alternating warp and weft floats. We explored honeycomb(so loved that they adored my favorite weave!)…and all with good cheer.

Sara, my fellow traveler, taught a beginning weaving class, and afterwards, we walked around the plaza and landed in Cueva, a colorful dive with yummy (affordable!) eats. Since we really were hoping for a post-class brewsky (and Cueva doesn’t serve alcohol), we left in search of a new adventure. We found it at Eske Brew Pub. We both enjoyed a pint of their yummy Black Cat, as well as the tripy environs and local color.
