Students will learn to braid roving, felt the braids, and sew the braids into a beautiful, functional, heirloom quality rug (in this class, students will complete a simple chair pad). We’ll braid in the morning while discussing color/design options, then the instructor will felt the braids at the local laundromat over lunch. The afternoon will be spent sewing. The techniques you learn can be used to create beautiful rugs at home.
