Weave Your Own Rag Rug

Learn to weave your own rag rug. We’ll explore the basics of weaving on a floor loom and leave the class with at least one finished 2’ x 3’ rug. Bring fabric scraps like old linens, t–shirts or even jeans. Rag rugs are easy and fun to weave and they make great gifts.

Special Notes

Materials List

Bring scrap fabrics, old clothing, bed linens, etc. from home to tear into strips and use for your rag rug. The amount of fabric needed depends on the thickness of the fabrics selected. One bag of fabric should be sufficient. All other materials are provided.
