Woven Table Runner

Serape style small woven table runner

The serape is a long blanket-like shawl, often brightly colored and fringed at the ends, worn in Mexico, especially by men. The term serape is for the rectangular woven blanket (no openings), though in more recent years it can also be used to refer to a very soft rectangular blanket with an opening in the middle for one's head, similar to a poncho in Mexico. Available in various colors and design patterns, the traditional serape as made in the Mexican state of Coahuila in north-eastern Mexico near the city of Saltillo often consists of a dark base color with bands of yellow, orange, red, blue, green, purple or other bright colors. The ends are usually fringed.

You will be provided all basic materials. You will be instructed how to create your own small lap loom, how to weave on it, and the finishing techniques for your table runner.
