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: www.vermontweavingschool.com.  

Desription:

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.
