Reversible Rag Rugs

Dates: May 1, 2023 - May 2, 2023

Cost per ticket: $285.00

About class

Lets weave a Rag Rug that has two totally different sides. We’ll prepare and warp your loom with a dark colored warp, you bring two contrasting cotton fabrics for two days of fun! Imagine bright floral prints for summer and warm autumn colors contrasting on the other side for the most versatile rug in your home as the seasons change. And just think of all the fun you’ll have showing off your two-faced rug to other weaver friends and your guests.

During our time together we will discuss how the magic happens as a result of a unique tie-up and treadling order that allows the warp to stitch the different wefts to the top and bottom layers creating the reversible design. We will also examine how this technique can be applied to other two-faced fabrics such as placemats, upholstery fabric and fashion fabrics that have a woven lining.

Students will be asked to bring 6 yards of fabric for each side totaling 12 yards of 45″ wide fabric. Tom loves batiks but any cotton fabric with good color definition on both side will work wonderfully. Pre-wash and dry your fabric prior to class but DO NOT cut your fabric.
