Meets 2 Sundays, Feb. 21 and 28, 3 – 5 PM
Rug braiding is a simple process, relatively easy to master, and can lead to fairly quick and satisfying results. Wendell resident Mara Bright will lead this two-part workshop on how to make traditional American braided rugs. Beginners and those who want to refresh their skills are welcome. Participants will learn how to select and prepare materials, to braid, and to stitch braids together to make an oval or circular rug.
Basic tools will be provided. Participants should bring old woolen clothing or wool yardage that can be made into strips, as well as sharp fabric scissors.
Mara Bright is a long-time rug braider who enjoys making beautiful and functional rugs out of recycled materials. Space is limited so please call the Wendell library at 978-544-3559 to register.
This program is funded in part by the Wendell Cultural Council and the Friends of the Wendell Free Library.
