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 take home and finish crafting at their leisure! Class fee includes fabric and a large wooden window loom. You are welcome to bring in your own cotton bed sheets or t-shirts to customize your mat colors.
