Checked Wool Rugs

Favored and admired for it’s classic appearance, Tom’s interpretation of a checked wool rug has been popular among weavers both new and experienced in rug making. In this course students will be guided through the planning processes of designing a rug of 100% wool, both warp and weft. Using two contrasting colors and weaving in a twill pattern students will master new skills such as squaring blocks, the use of multi-strand wefts and so many more great tips n’ tricks from Tom. Materials are not included with your tuition but available for purchase.
