Rag Rug Weaving: Table Runner and Placemats

Course Overview

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.
