Fabric Strip (Rag) Weaving
Instructor: Marcy Johnson
This class is for those who want to learn the techniques of fabric strip preparation and weaving of rag rugs. Class will include preparation of wefts (fabric strips from yardage or sheets) and discussion and weaving of rugs in tabby (with an emphasis on weft patterning) and log cabin. Floor looms will be warped by students under instructor supervision. Think of this as your weaving studio away from home. Also covered will be finishing, critique, and project cut-off. The first class will include choosing colors for log cabin warp. Students will do some homework outside of class time.
Supply cost will vary according to materials the group chooses to weave with. Students will procure and prepare fabric strips for second class. Payment for warp and any additional weft will be collected upon completion of rugs.
The class will take place at Marcy's studio on west Queen Anne (with good parking!). Dress in layers as the studio is in the garage. The second half of the class will start at 9am. You will be emailed driving directions before class.
