|Ingrid T. tightens the eyebolts on her rug frame|
Students assembled their frames: nails were pounded, corners squared, and eyebolts affixed.

After the frames were built, denim was stripped and sewn into strips so the frames could be loaded. The process of twining was demonstrated and then practiced by the students. Before leaving for the day, they had at least two - three rows started at the top and bottom of their frames. The class would have a "work night" again in two weeks to check progress and to revisit technique for those who hadn't quite mastered it.
|Clarinda T. made a lot of progress on her rug at home. |
She enjoyed twining in the evenings.
