A Gang Of Mug-Rugs

$75.00

In this class we'll explore some new techniques such as "ganging up" (making several coasters on one warp), how to figure out yardage needed, considering shrinkage and draw-in, and the finishing techniques that give a final polish to these cute mug rugs. Students will learn how to weave a fine header for hemming, how to measure weaving as you progress, and how to warp your loom for a weft-faced project, a technique used in tapestry weaving. You must be able to warp your own loom for this class.
