Rag Rug Making – SOLD OUT

  • Rag Rug Making

    12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Scandinavian loop weaving is a simple and durable technique that uses no thread or looms, and turns trash into treasure!

First you’ll learn how to make the repeating knot on a practice rug, then you’ll get started on your own rug. You won’t finish a rug during the class, but you will get through the hardest parts, and have a chance to practice starting a second rug to lock your new skills into your brain.

Rag Rugs with the Duluth Folk School

While supplies will be available for purchase at the class, most students prefer to bring their own old bed sheets or similar fabric that can be easily torn into strips. Two or three sheets in complementary colors will make an oval 2’x4’ rug. This easy, useful craft project is perfect for long winter nights, holiday and wedding gifts, and for keeping your toes warm!

  1. What type of sheets work best for the rag rug class?
    Cotton, flannel, polyester, cotton polyester blend?

    • Hi Connie. Here’s the response from the instructor:

      Actually, too much poly in the blend makes the threads hurt your fingers. The more cotton the better, flannel is wonderful as long as it isn’t printed just on one side, and t-shirt sheets are a no-go because they don’t rip.

  2. So bummed it is Sold out! Would love to see it offered again! 🙂

  3. Will this class be offered again soon?
