Braided Wool Rug Classes

Posted: August 18, 2015

Learn the skills needed to create a beautiful braided wool rug at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire's Carson Park this October.

Rug braider Beverly Ramey returns to instruct participants as they practice the steps, including preparing the materials and getting started, braiding, lacing, and finishing the rug. Participants can have a good start on a small rug by the end of the workshop.

The workshop sessions will be held on three Saturdays in October, the 3rd, 17th and 24th. Classes run from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Participants can attend one to three sessions as desired. Participants must be age 12 or older, and know how to thread a needle.

Cost is $30 for museum members, $35 for non-members for all three sessions. Past Chippewa Valley Museum Rug Braiding participants can attend the sessions for just $15. Participants may use their own wool for the project, or they can purchase a wool kit directly from the instructor for an additional $25.

Call Liz Reuter at 715-834-7871 to register by Monday, September 21st. Class space is limited.
