String Figure Weekend

Imagine spending a whole
weekend with an expert in
strings and stories,
learning how to weave the
figures and the simple
stories that accompany
them. Learn one-on-one at
your own pace in the
comfortable surroundings
of Dave’s home. Whether
you are a beginner or are
experienced in string,
this weekend intensive
could be for you..

Arrive on Friday and
review the basics. Dave
and you will assess where
you are and outline where
you want to be by Sunday

Start Saturday with a
country breakfast and
relearn what you forgot
from Friday and then
work, work, work. Well,
there will be time to
play, laugh and relax
too. A short trip on
Saturday afternoon to the
Wichita Mountains (yes
they are only 20 miles
away) and see the wild
buffalo and longhorns and
maybe a trip to
Geronimo’s grave.

The Apache Gate, Tipi,
and other figures take on
new meaning when learned
in this setting. Supper
in the Mountains and home
to view some rare footage
of Inuit elders working
in string. More practice,
learning and forgetting.
This total immersion
process into the world of
string will be intensive
but fun. You will not
only learn the figures
but also much of the
process of where they
came from and what they

Sunday can include a
spiritual experience of
your choice. By this time
much of what you have
learned will start to
come together. You will
see patterns,
similarities etc. You
will be caught in the
web. If you want we will
take time to video tape
each figure that you
learned with you
describing the opening
moves as a reminder when
you get home.

Details: $400 for the
weekend, Friday afternoon
through Sunday afternoon
including meals and
lodging. You might want
to have another time
configuration as fits
your schedule and Daves.
You can drive, or arrive
at the airport in Lawton
or Oklahoma City and Dave
will pick you up. NOTE:
If you care, this whole
experience can happen in
your own home. If you pay
Dave’s travel, he can
come to you.
