Class Description:

Discover the basic skills necessary for braiding round wool rugs! Discover braiding techniques such as for example braiding right, braiding corners, including fabric strips, and lacing the braids collectively nicely to help keep your project flat. Finish a small 6” braided coffee mat with a fringe, or carry on braiding at home to make a chair pad, or a sizable round carpet. Aided by the skills learned in course, it is possible to keep enlarging any project successfully in the home if desired. Products will likely make a 6” pad; create your mat larger by recycling wool clothes as our grandmothers did, or by buying wool strips.

If there is time, we shall cover the annals of carpet braiding, that will be an uniquely American art.
