Join us for Krokbragd Weaving with Ghislaine Chock.

Want to experience how to weave your own sturdy rug, made of linen and wool that will last a lifetime? Your finished rug will measure 24” by 45” plus fringes. With the flexible Scandinavian technique Krokbragd, using a minimum of 3 colors, each rug will be individually spectacular. Beware, rug weaving is addicting!

Required Skill Level:

This class is open to all skill levels. However, beginner students must be able to measure warp threads, and set up a 4-harness loom (front to back or back to front).

On the first day of class, there is a $25 supply fee given to the instructor, which includes warp linen, a curved end needle. If you do not have a rug beater, you can purchase a rug beater for an additional $30. Ghislaine will go over beater options on the first day of class.

There is an additional supply fee for weft used in the project. As each project is unique, the price will vary. The project requires 4 lbs. of wool weft yarn; new weft may be purchased as needed and costs $34 per lb. You may bring your own* or use Hui donated yarn to save on the cost of weft. Please plan accordingly, as the instructor only takes cash or checks for supply fee payments. 

*Weft needs to be 2-ply or 3-ply wool yarn in 3 colors, approx. 4 lbs. total.

What to Bring:
  • Day 1: $25 Supply Fee
  • Day 1: $30 New Rug Beater purchase (optional)
  • After Day 1: Weft supply fee**
  • Weaving tools: Supplies to facilitate setting a loom including: measuring your warp, scissors, tape measurement, note pad, calculator, sley tools, shuttles, and bobbins. (If you bring a curved end needle reduce the $25 supply fee by $5)
  • Beverage, snacks, and whatever makes you comfortable.

**Weft supply fee will vary.
