Rag Weaving - Thurs., PM LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Reviving a craft rooted in the simplicity and resourcefulness of families in the 1800’s, we combine our handmade wooden looms with strips of fabric to create beautiful and functional pieces. This simple technique involves using old sheets, saved fabric, flannel and cotton shirts and other clothing, polar fleece, wool, and chenille bedspreads and tearing them into strips and making trivets, placemats, mug rugs, table runners, chair pads, table squares, and throw rugs for your home. 

Rag weaving is enjoyable and relaxing and is easy to master for all skill levels. During the workshop, you will knot your fabric, warp the loom, and then hand weave a lovely trivet for your kitchen. No previous experience is necessary and there is NO sewing involved.   

Participants will weave sitting in chairs, leaning the looms against the tables while balancing them on their laps.

All skill levels welcome.

Cindy and Katie can be reached by emailing primitivestuff@rochester.rr.com with any questions.
