Rugs from Rags

Caroline Dvorak

Fabric remnants will be used to make a 24"x30" rug. Students will have a choice of making a "Sock Rug", using loopers from a sock factory, or making a "Rag Rug" using strips of fabric remnants or clothing. No weaving experience is necessary. The looms are dressed and ready to go, all you need to bring is your creative spirit and leave with a finished one-of-a-kind rag rug. Extra materials may be purchased for a small fee of $3.00 per inch if you wish to make a longer rug.

Silk Painting: Scarves

Nan Travers

Painting silk is an exciting and magical process. First silk is stretched on a frame and then dyes are applied using paint brushes and other techniques. The colors develop right before your eyes along the beautiful surface of the silk. You will learn different application techniques, first with a sampler and then with scarves and/or fabric. Students will be mixing their colors from the primary colors and black and will complete the process by steam setting the dyes. All work is done on silk provided by the instructor and each student will make two scarves.

  • Location: AFS, 51 Main Street, Lake Luzerne, NY

         Members: $85
         Non-members: $105

  • Total course cost due at registration time: $130 (members)         $150 (nonmembers)
  • Course Length: 1 Day

Additional scarves will be available at an extra cost for those who would like to make more than two.
