Learn about plain weave and its variations, use of color, selection of weft material, and finishes, as you immerse yourself in rag rug weaving. You’ll choose your own designs, such as stripes, twisted weft, inlay, and gradations. Returnees may opt for a Log Cabin, Double Binding, Patchwork or Diamond rug. Bring recycled fabric for a truly traditional rug, or use new to make a more tailored project. Looms and weaving accessories provided. Sewing machine in good working order is highly recommended.
Deb Sharpee’s interest in weaving was first sparked as a small child, watching her grandmother weave rag rugs. Miles of warp later, Deb has much to share with her students. Her work has been published in Weavers, Complex Weavers Journal, Crafts Report and Handwoven magazines, and the books Weaving Contemporary Rag Rugs and the latest edition of the Rag Rug Handbook.No tags for this post.
