The Schoharie River Center is excited to welcome back Helen Condon for a two day workshop, Saturday June 2 (from 9am-4pm) and Sunday June 3 (from 9am-2pm).
Helen Condon is a master artist of braided rag rugs, an early American craft which uses recycled wool to create sturdy and decorative rugs, chair mats and stair treads. Born in Newfoundland, she has her own business, Adirondack Rug Braiding, and is a frequent workshop leader at the Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, and the Sagamore Institute at Racquette Lake. She has lead several workshops at the Schoharie River Center in the past and she is returning to lead this two day workshop where she will be teaching the techniques of braiding and shaping rag rugs.
In this workshop, participants will complete a 24” x 30” “Rectangular” shaped rug, perfect for a small area. All materials will be provided, however, the registration fee does not include the cost for the materials, which is $75. Please bring $75 cash, or a check (made payable to Helen Condon) to the event.
Reserve your seat today, either by printing, completing the form (linked here) and mailing it in, along with a check (made payable to the Schoharie River Center), or, use our secure PayPal link below.
This workshop is now closed - sorry, there are no more seats available!
