Join us for Rag Rugs with Reina Young, Linda Hee & Linda Taylor.
Learn how to weave a rag rug. Have fun repurposing old materials to create something new. Draft your own unique rug design and bring it to life using a variety of plain-weave patterning techniques. Instructors will introduce the parts of a loom, explain how they work, and demonstrate how to measure a warp and dress the loom for weaving a rag rug.
By the end of the class, participants will know the basics of weaving a rug on a loom, and they will take home a one-of-a-kind 2'x3' creation.
There will be an additional $10 supply fee, payable to the instructor on the first day of class, which includes150 yards of rug warp, handouts and two sheets of graph paper.
What to Bring:
- $10 supply fee
- Notebook and colored pencils or pens
- Old sheets to be cut for weft
