Materials saved from the landfill:
t-shirts, bed sheets, fabrics, windows, wood

Skills you’ll learn:
warping a frame loom, weaving

Gather up old sheets, clothes or scrap fabric pieces and transform these rags into a beautiful floor mat! The class will cover the basics of making a woven floor mat out of recycled fabrics. This workshop will cover from start to finish how to construct a rag mat, from cutting the fabric to simple weaving techniques, including warping the window frame loom, joining pieces of fabric, and making looped rya, if you want a shag rug. You’ll also learn how to use string heddles to speed up your weaving pace. Participants will get started on a rectangular mat which they can finish crafting at their leisure! Class fee includes fabric and a large wooden window loom with handmade needle. You are welcome to use your own cotton bed sheets or t-shirts to customize your mat colors.

This is a virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom. Participants will be emailed information about how to participate prior to the class. You will be able to pick up a kit of materials containing a large frame loom, needle, and yarn balls on Thursday or Friday, May 6-7, from 11a-5pm, or you may email classes@perennialstl.org to arrange another time.
