Sunday, May 19th, 2-5pm
The Wilder Textile Art Studio in the Emerson Suite 107a, Bozeman, MT
About the Class:
A satisfyingly utilitarian project to burn through your scrap pile or repurpose old clothing. You will learn how to prepare fabric for weaving, get a solid start on making your own rug and gain confidence to finish it at home. This approach is perfect for those looking to begin a low pressure, therapeutic hobby. An overview of other rag-rug techniques and histories will accompany this hands on session. All materials will be provided and students can take home enough fabric to finish their project. Designed for ages 12 and up.
