Rag Rug Weaving for Beginners
A woven rag rug table runner is a lovely addition to any table. When accompanied by matching placemats, the effect is altogether home-y and warm. Plus, they are great projects for a first-time weaver and attractive ways to upcycle old blankets and other fabrics. In this session, students will learn how to read a simple weaving draft, wind a warp and thread a loom, as well as learn about different weave structures and history. They will design and weave a table runner and placemats exploring the use of color and materials on the four harness floor loom. This session will happen in person at North House but a virtual meeting to discuss materials preparation will occur a week prior.
- Binder with paper and graph paper

Please join the instructor for a short discussion about materials preparation for the course, if you would like to bring your own fabric (rags) to incorporate into your project. We will meet on Zoom on December 30 at 7pm. Hope to see you there!
