Each lecture has a selection of slides and hands on carpets to handle with a talk of 30 – 40 mins followed by a 20 min question and answer session. Available lectures are
• Restoration verses conservation.
• The migration of design within oriental carpets.
• What to look for when buying an oriental carpet.
Each workshop can be held either at the rug studio or off site, normally a one day course.
• Gabbeh or Kilim Weaving
Learn to warp up a small sample loom, space the warps, carry out a ‘finish’ to the rug prior to learning the art of either a knotted ‘Gabbeh’ rug or a flat weave kilim rug.
