Ancient Art of Rug Weaving
The purpose of this group is to promote the ancient art of rug weaving in the greater NY area. If you are an arts & crafts lover, this another medium you will simply love to work in.
However, unlike knitting or other crafts, there is nowhere in Manhattan to learn the secrets of rug weaving…until NOW. We are starting off with beginner’s workshops with the hopes of creating a future rug weaving circle.
Learn How To Weave Rugs!
You will learn the ABCs of vertical rug weaving, including terms such as warp and weft, techniques such as knotting and the basics of design. You will discover how to weave a rug in your own design. You will actually practice the art of rug making by weaving a small rug of your own using the loom and materials provided to each participant. This is an exciting opportunity to learn how rugs have been made for thousands of years from an experienced teacher who will carefully guide you at every stage.
