Weaving a Weft-Face Rug with Ray Cooper

Learn to weave on a 4-Harness floor loom while creating a weft-faced rug.  Weft-faced means that the weft yarn is the only yarn visible in the woven piece.  The warp threads are spaced far enough apart that the weft yarns pack in around the warp, covering it up.  This creates a dense fabric that will wear well.  You will design and weave your very own rug, and perhaps try out Krokbragd, a Norwegian weaving technique.

This class will meet for 3 sessions.  You'll be encouraged to come in and work on your looms outside of class time, too.  Please mark your calendars for the following dates and times:

Saturday, February 11th from 1:00pm-5:00pm

Saturday, February 18th from 1:00pm-3:30pm

Saturday, March 4th from 1:00pm-3:30pm

Cost is $235 and includes 3 weeks of loom rental and warp yarn.  Weft yarn will be available for purchase or you may bring your own.  Worsted and/or Aran weight wool yarn will work well for this project.  You will need between 800-1200 yards.
