How To: Fiber Rush Weaving

04/28/2024 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM ET


In this class you will learn the basic weaving pattern called fiber rush weave. The class starts with assembling a small stool, followed by making a seat of rush weave using an all natural, paper-based fibre rush. Students will learn to make tight, square corners, and perfect a figure eight weaving pattern. The class includes all the materials necessary to leave with a beautiful hand-woven footstool.
