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.

Laura makes it so easy, and materials are inexpensive and easy to find, and the finished project is amazing!
Thanks for the great tutorial! I have heard about painted rugs before but am amazed at how simple the project was!

Designer of jewelry and interior decor

I am a jewelry and home decor designer. Much of my inspiration comes from the beauty of the charming coastal community around me. My jewelry pieces feature natural stone and leather and sometimes local shells. I love the look and feel of the natural materials!

I've been making things all my life. It's just what I do. I'm happy to have this opportunity to share my creations with you and be inspired by you in turn.
