About the Event

In Kyrgyzstan, when a daughter got married, her mother and her relatives felted her a rug. Using their ancient symbols they felted her best wishes and good luck into the rug that stayed with her for the rest of her life.

In this workshop, you’ll create a felted rug (approximately 3’ x 5’) with the instructor’s pre-felt technique, using either the several hundred-year-old symbols or creating your very own.

Come and join us for a four-day workshop and learn:

about the traditional symbols and techniques of the felted nomad rugs

about various kinds of wool that felts the best rugs

how to plan a powerful design

how to make your own prefelt with color transitions

how to construct and felt a large rug

how to shape and control nice edges on a large rug

how to turn the soft prefelt into a strong and durable felt

some small tricks of the trade that make the felting process easier and get rewarded with a beautiful felted rug you complete by the end of the class!
