AREA RUG CONSTRUCTIONS
(.1 CEU IDCEC Course # 101434)
Have you ever wondered what was actually happening behind the scenes once your area rug order was placed? This beginner-level class allows you to experience the craftsmanship behind imported hand-tufted, Tibetan hand-knotted and Persian hand-knotted pieces through photos and video, learning their similarities and differences. American manufacturing is back, and Leah will give you the inside schoop on this process that can deliver high-quality New Zealand Wool area rugs in less than 6 weeks. Leave this class feeling more confident using industry terminology, with a Glossary of Terms provided.
DYED IN THE WOOL
(.1 CEU IDCEC Course #104174)
This intermediate-level class covers the increasing importance of wool to meet environmentally-aware consumer demand for sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable products. Look at the actual fiber make-up and its attributes, plus learn why New Zealand Wool is sought after, how wool goes from sheer into spun yarn, and what existing products are currently available to meet consumer demand for its myriad uses, from luxurious fine merino knitware to fire-retardant insulation for the home.
