3D Printed Traditional Boat ShuttleThis is a traditional boat shuttle design used by Rio Grande weavers for generations. The sticks are Apache Plume, which is a plant local to the area. The wood is known for being flexible for long periods of time. Originally, these shuttles were hand-carved by weavers in the area, and this design is no different; this shuttle is one specifically designed by Jake O. Trujillo, 3D printed so they can be enjoyed and used by many.
I, Emily Trujillo, had the opportunity to curate a museum exhibit on Rio Grande weaving at the Museum of Spanish Colonial Arts. This is a brief telling of my experience with the project and also about the exhibit itself.
The spring of 2023 is the most green one I can remember here in Chimayo. We have had an abundance of gentle rain.
