Rug Weaving - Basket Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Instructed by Helen Condon
Helen Condon learned the art of rag rug braiding over fifty years ago from her grandmother, Sarah Campbell Taylor, who taught her how to make braided rugs using discarded, wool clothing. Using the skills in braiding and matching colors learned at thirteen years old, (combined with a better way of joining the braids learned from Sally Cheney in Hebron, Connecticut) Helen has honed these skills to form her life work. Well known throughout the Northeast, Helen Condon teaches rug braiding workshops in her studio and at such premier establishments as the Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown and the Sagamore Institute. From her studio in Parishville, NY, (a re-purposed Grange Hall) Helen continues to teach and to sell her work.
