Explore how to design your own rug by using the written word for inspiration. We will talk about different design aspects (space, colour etc); how to design if you cannot draw; how to let that “inspiration angel” free and keep it engaged. How to choose a design when more than one springs into your head when reading. And so much more.

Student Materials:

  • A favourite poem, song, short story, or newspaper article
  • Sketch book
  • Sketch pencils
  • Coloured pencils
  • Rug backing in case you are ready to put it on the backing
  • Sharpie
