The weaving basics including winding a warp, dressing a loom, reading a draft and weaving with a rag shuttle will be presented as well as finishing the rug with a fringe or a hem. The first session is an informational meeting to learn about selection and preparation of fabric. Carpet warp is available for purchase at WGM. Students will supply recycled or new cotton fabric.
