Christine Manges is a rugmaking artist whose focus is on braiding with wool fabric. She will present a history of rug braiding in America and show its evolution from peasant craft to artistry. Christine recently curated an exhibit of Contemporary Braided Art Rugs that was shown in Ohio, Vermont and Pennsylvania. Christine will bring some of her art rugs to show and share. Please bring braided rugs from your family with you. Christine will give you information about their techniques and construction.
