Weaving Shaker Rag Rugs
Rugs, Weaving
November 1-7, 2009
Instructor: Melissa Weaver Dunning
Tuition: $512.00
Champions at recycling, the Shakers graced their plain wood floors with warm and colorful rag rugs. Turkey tracks and chevrons enhanced the plain weave stripes in their woven rugs. Learn some history and many design techniques while weaving a beautiful floor covering from wool or cotton fabrics and yarns. Beginners welcome, although some experience with a floor loom is helpful.
