Mug Rug – Tiny Tapestry Techniques #1

This class is designed for beginners, but anyone is welcome to participate. Class will cover warping, meet and separate, hatching, double half hitch knots, pigtails.

Students will have homework so we can work on finishing methods the last hour of class. Open to people ages 14 and over.

This class consists of three 2-hour sessions on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. on November 5, November 12 and November 19, 2019.
