About This Class

If you're like me, you cringe at the thought of spending hundreds on area rugs for your home. This class will teach you how to hand-paint an inexpensive carpet remnant from your local hardware store to look like that brand name area rug you've been drooling over. I'll teach students how to sketch out a rug design, transfer the design to the carpet, and provide techniques and tips for painting.
