Join In Felt Rug Making At The Duluth Art Institute
The Duluth Art Institute has various programs throughout the year that people can participate in regardless of artistic skill level. Some of the programs have a cost and some are free, the the two day Community Felt Rug Making Class.
Making felt rugs is a lot of work and more people to help out can help ease that workload. The rug that will be worked on for two days over the weekend will be a gift for the Duluth Public Library and you can help out.
The way it works is, the rug begins at about 8' by 10' with a design, then soapy water is added and together it's walked on with bare feet. There will be live music as people walk, stomp, sing, kick, and roll the wool into a felt rug.
It's Saturday, November 16th and Sunday, November 17th, from 10:00AM-5:00PM at the Duluth Folk School located at 1917 West Superior Street in Duluth. Everyone is welcome and you can stop by for 10 minutes or help out all day both days with no experience necessary.
