Learn how to twine a rag rug on Friday, Sept. 22, from 9 am to 12:45 pm using a set of queen or king sized sheets or about 10 yards of cotton material that the students provide themselves.
In this class the students will be shown how to rip their material into strips suitable for both the warp and the weft of the 24" x 36" peg loom. We'll show them how to join the strips, twine both left and right and around corners and last, how to finish up and remove the rug from the loom. Students will take home their loom and be given a month to finish their rug and return the loom.
If at any point they need help, especially for finishing, they can call the library for an appointment with Melissa.
This is a free class with a limit of 5. Ages 16 and up. Note that the class starts at 9 am, before the library is open, so they will have to ring the doorbell to let us know when they arrive.
Students who wish to use denim from old jeans for their rug must bring at least two pairs of jeans with them and we'll show them how to cut them up and provide them with suitable warp for $3. They may also purchase ready made balls of denim strips from us for $3/ball. (You'll need 12 pairs of jeans in all or 12 balls). Call Melissa for any questions at 669-1255.
