Event description

Description

Repurpose old shirts and jeans you don't wear anymore, and bed sheets you never use into beautiful rag rugs. This is a great workshop for beginners to learn the basics of the loom and enjoy a hands-on approach to learning how to weave. Rag rugs are a simple way to give your old clothing new life as a small doormat or bath mat, plus it makes a great gift for a friend! All tools provided, but participants will need to bring a few items of cloth (jeans, t-shirts, bed sheets, etc.).

Instructor Kelsy Magnuson discovered textiles while attending Warren Wilson College in Swannonoa, NC. She worked on the Fiber Arts Crew at Warren Wilson, and taught workshops to fellow students and faculty. She also made functional textiles to sell at events and craft fairs. In 2016, Kelsey was awarded Outstanding Student Award by the Surface Design Association. She was the Head of Weaving at a small girls camp in Maine and spent four months traveling the country to perform puppet shows at elementary schools with Red Herring Puppets of Asheville. Kelsey is interested in natural dying, which uses plants to produce color on her textiles to create pieces that are unique to the area she's working in.
