With over 30 years of experience as a professional weaver, Jason has produced thousands of rugs for corporate and individual clients the world over. He has woked with interior designers, architects, and fashion houses around the globe.

Learn how to make a strong, serviceable rug in plain weave and in twill. Every aspect of rug weaving will covered, from designing to warping to finishing. Many techniques will be taught. Students will leave with enough inspiration to design and weave a lifetime of rugs. Plan to weave samples and not a finished rug.

This is not a beginning weaving class. Students must be able to warp and weave independently on a floor loom. Participants will receive advance instructions for warping a 12" warp of 8/5 linen; tie on will be taught in class. Bring a 4-shaft loom warped in 8/5 linen with Jason's instructions and learn to tie on in class according to Jason's preferred method. There will be a group order for the linen warp, as well as the weft yarn. Details and emailed warping instructions will be provided by the chair, Toby Ganz, closer to the date of the workshop.
