Rag Rug Weaving Demonstration @ Walkertown June 16th

Join us in observing master craftsman, John Wald, as he uses his hand-made loom to weave rag rugs. Mr. Wald will be demonstrating the twining method to weave his rugs. This method involves twisting two separate pieces of material over and around a third piece that is suspended on a frame to hold it in place. Audience participation is welcomed.

Instructor John Wald is a self-taught craftsman who has always enjoyed working with his hands. At age 14, he began working in a bakery and recently hung up his apron after 52 years. Along the way, he has learned how to make other hands-on crafts such as rug and chair seat weaving, basket making, chair caning, furniture, and wooden toys. His crafts have been sold at the Seagrove Pottery Festival and Old Salem Museums & Gardens.

We welcome all age groups to attend.
