Penny Rugs: Woolen Mosaics

Course Overview

Penny rugs use felted wool scraps to create a textile feast for the eye. Multicolored scraps are arranged in contrasting and complementary colors to create table runners, placemats and more, making a room come alive with color. Shapes of descending sizes are layered onto a wool background piece and stitched into place. Called "penny" rugs because the original template was a copper penny, these pieces have offered a frugal way to indulge in creative expression since the early 1800s. In this class, you'll design and finish one project, with the possibility of pursuing a larger piece or starting a second project. While they are called "rugs," the finished product is too beautiful to walk on, and makes a great table runner, trivet, pillow cover or colorful touch.
