Online Webinar


The artistry of Mimbres potters (southwestern New Mexico ca. 1050) was uniquely their own.  But the technology of their pottery was not.  The techniques – manifest as dimples, slip-slop, and clapboard – were shared with contemporary societies to the west and to the north.  Mimbres’ engagements first with Hohokam and then with Chaco shaped Mimbres society – and Mimbres pottery.  The techniques of Mimbres pottery and their provenance help us better understand Mimbres' role in the history of the greater Southwest.


This webinar is suitable for lifelong learners from high school students to adults.  The lesson is free.
