Penny Rugs

Taught by: 

Explore penny rugs and their endless versatility in color and design. The relaxing and satisfying process of making the rugs involves cutting simple shapes from felted wool and sewing them by hand to a dark background with a decorative blanket stitch. Instruction will include color and composition, along with examples and tips for design. Other stitches and finishing techniques will be demonstrated, as will embellishments like the inclusion of beads, buttons, and sequins. Supply fee covers basic materials; depending on project, in-class purchases may be needed. All levels welcome.
