19R120L - Introduction to Rug Weaving
April 30-May 2, 2019
Tuesday-Thursday, 9am-4pm
Jason Collingwood

19R120L - Introduction to Rug Weaving

19R120L - Introduction to Rug Weaving

An ideal course for those wishing to try out rug weaving for the first time, though with enough “tricks” to also suit the more experienced weaver.
Students will learn how to make a strong serviceable rug (plain weave being an excellent structure for rugs). Initially, you will be weaving stripes and spots using two colors while learning how to overcome the selvage problems inherent in each different design.
Clasped wefts, crossed wefts, and compensated inlay will be covered – all these new techniques give the weaver more freedom with design.
The class will include instruction on how to set up one’s loom correctly for rug weaving. Twining at the beginning and end of the rug, darning in of the loose ends, use of the temple, and many other invaluable tips for successful rug weaving will be shared.
Class concludes with a look at rug finishes – a few of the many finishes will be demonstrated.

Bring your own four shaft loom or call Shake Rag Alley to inquire about renting one.
