Intro. to Rug Braiding

$64

with Lorraine Valentine

Calendar Sep 23, 2017 at 9 am, runs for 3 weeks

The three-strand braided wool rug is reminiscent of an era when rag rugs were considered an affordable way to reuse worn clothing and blankets to create a rug for the home. On the first day, participants will learn how to choose the right wool and begin the braiding process. The 2nd class will focus on shaping the braid and lacing. The 3rd class will be held two weeks after the 2nd class which will allow students the time to practice, ask questions and have their work critiqued. The materials included will allow each participant to make a small trivet or chair seat. Register early; this class will take only 6 students. Instructor: Lorraine Valentine 3 classes – Saturdays, 9/23, 9/30 & 10/14, 9:00am-11:00am, Gorham Arts Alliance, $64 (materials included) (Gorham Arts Alliance is located at 34 School St., Gorham, ME.)
