About the Event

A parfleche is a type of wallet or bag made from rawhide. Historically made by Plateau, Great Basin, and Plains women, they are usually decorated with brightly colored geometrical designs. A parfleche is a Native American rawhide container that is embellished by painting, incising or both.   - Wikipedia

Susan Lenarz is a new Albuquerque resident and our newest instructor.  She'll be sharing with you how to complete this beautiful project.
