About the Class

"Color * Texture * Design for Primitive Rugs" is for those who love primitive rugs, and focuses on the use of textures, wide cut and color appropriate for the pattern design. Students will explore how the key to mixing many textured fabrics is balance.  Hooking wool in deep rich colors of Early America creates a rug that becomes an “instant antique.”
