Felt Area Rugs: Traditional Turkish Feltbeating

In this 4-day workshop, artist Jo Hesse will show students how to make their own thick, fully functional felt area rug. The rug will be intricately patterned with geometric designs in the various colors of wool. The majority of the workshop will take place on the floor, but the final day will be spent hand finishing the rug on a tabletop. There is a supply fee of $25 per pound of wool used; expect to use between 1.5 and 3.5 lbs.
