Twined Rag Rug
Reuse and repurpose worn out clothing, worn out linens and/or left over fabrics into beautiful, creative rag rugs by learning the techniques of Twined Rag Rugs. At the completion of the two evening class, you will leave with a loom, completed 20” x 32” rug, and the knowledge to create more lasting pieces for your home. During the first session, learn how to warp your loom for weaving and learn the weaving techniques. Students will work on their piece over the next week and come to the second session to complete the weaving, remove the rug from the loom and learn techniques for finishing the ends. Plan on a total of 12-15 hours to complete one rug. Bring to class the following: A sharp scissors, crochet hook/latch hook and approximately 15 yards of similar weight fabric (repurposed or new). If you don’t have materials at home, check a local thrift store for fabric, sheets, curtains, or jeans. Instruction on how to prepare your fabric will be distributed to you 5 days prior to the class start date.
The fee for loom purchase and supplies is included in the registration fee.
