ONLINE RUG TWINING WORKSHOP – FEBRUARY 2021

Our first online rug twining workshop was very successful.  As a result, Dan Lajoie and the Guild are offering a second online twining workshop in February 2021.  Registration fee is $40.00 for members and $45.00 for non-members.

During the workshop, participants will learn how to plan a project (a rug or table runner) including planning for your projects’ size and design; warping a frame loom; preparing your weft materials and how to weave your project using two basic techniques (counter twining and same pitch twining).   By the end of four classes, participants will have a finished piece.

Dan has built specialized looms for this workshop.  The looms will be available for a $15.00 rental fee payable directly to Dan.   Registrants will use the looms for the duration of the workshop.  The looms will be available to purchase at the end of the event by anyone interested for $50.00 (minus the $15.00 rental fee already paid).  Warp will be provided with the loom. 

Participants will also be required to provide their own weaving material (weft) and prepare their weft material in advance of the workshop.  Additional instructions about these required advanced preparations will be sent to participants once a completed registration form and full payment of the workshop registration fee has been received by the Guild.
