Learn how to produce the bold and colorful patterns of three-shaft krokbragd, Norwegian for “crooked paths.” The simple, three-step weaving sequence, coupled with splashes of color, forms the magical patterns of this weft-faced weaving structure. Learn how to weave the fun pathways of krokbragd and become familiar with designing on the fly to create a beautiful rug. Students should have experience warping a loom.
Beginning weavers and those who have been away from the loom: join us as we tackle the basics of weaving. Learn terminology and how to read a draft, then plan a project and prepare the loom for weaving a set of four placemats or a table runner in a rag rug style. The rag rug design will equip you with skills applicable to a variety of future projects including scarves and hand towels. No weaver weft behind!
Learn all the steps to creating a traditional hooked rug, from start to finish. Get introduced to transferring patterns to a backing, basic color planning, proper loop-pulling techniques, and several options for finishing techniques. Each student will choose a pattern or work on a project they have already started, choose colors for that pattern, and then work at their own level to finish the project.
