Weave a Rag Rug
Instructor, Jacqueline Bourque, will begin by sharing various designs for rugs with her students. Once you’ve decided on a design, Jacqueline will teach you how to calculate the amount of material you will need to purchase. Once this is determined, participants and instructor will go together to purchase materials. Some of your own material may be incorporated, so bring that along! The class will make a warp and dress a floor loom as well as learn how to prepare materials for weaving. Finishing techniques will also be explored.
