Rag Rug Weaving: Table Runner and Placemats
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.
North House is looking forward to hosting this course on campus in the safest way possible. As recommended by our HVAC consultants, we have increased air ventilation and installed an air filtration system. We perform extra cleaning of campus and are keeping class sizes small in our largest classrooms. Students must participate in a daily health screening and temperature check, agree to wear a mask at all times on campus, and to practice social distancing of 6 feet, as well as adhere to other safety protocols in some cases. See the full details of our COVID-19 protocols here.
Includes materials fee of $25.00
