April 11, 2015 - Rag Rugs with Dena Moses
Dena Moses has been weaving for twenty-nine years and sells her line of glorious scarves, shawls and hats at highly juried craft shows and fine galleries around New England. She runs Vermont Weaving School and delights in training weavers to make fabulous cloth with joy and ease. More information about her and her school is at vermontweavingschool.com.
Rag Rug weaving is the ultimate recycling adventure! In
this class, we will learn all the ins and outs of turning
those old and unwanted clothes into fabulous rugs. We
will begin by talking about setting up your warp. We
will learn how to dissect clothes and prepare them for your
weft, discuss many different design possibilities, and look
at lots and lots of samples (including many from Edith
House's collection). This
class will also cover different looms and what makes them
better or worse for weaving rugs. You will
leave with plenty of inspiration and information to get
started on making great rag rugs.
If you’re a weaver--beginner or pro--the Vermont Weavers
Guild welcomes you. Plan to join us at one of our regular
meetings at the Kimball House, Randolph, Vermont.
