Standing Wool Rugs

Details: This workshop is about recycling and repurposing the smallest of wool scraps into folk art rugs. We will use a five-inch shirring needle and heavy thread to sew wool strips and manipulate them in various ways to stand them on end to stand alone and make a thick plush rug or mat. We will cover standing wools, center shirring, beaded wools, caterpillar braids, and several other methods to make a sample piece for a table mat, chair seat or to go on to making a larger rug. You will leave with the skills to go on to recycle your worn or unused wool clothing into true heirloom memory rugs.

Price: $105 museum members; $130 nonmembers, + $20 materials fee
