Rug Twining I

9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Gary Byker Memorial Library of Hudsonville
Library Lower level

Event Details

Learn how to twine on Saturday, October 2 from 9 am to 1 pm.  The cost is $30 and includes everything you need to make your own twined denim rug using materials that we provide.  Please note that this class will need to meet one additional time to be determined by the students progress.  Also note that class meets 1 hour before the library opens, so you'll have to ring the doorbell.

 In the first class you will learn how to warp the twining loom and then do the actual twining.  We’ll also give you the denim jeans necessary to finish the rug – and show you how to turn the jeans into weaving strips.  You’ll then take the loom home and finish the rug up to a certain point – and then bring it back for finishing.

The finishing class is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, November 6 from 9 am to noon.  There you will finish weaving the center, remove the rug from the loom and finish the edges.    Your new rug will be ready to go!  If you can’t make the November class, we can do that at different times – just let me know and I’ll take care of each of you individually.
