Decorative Floorcloths

Decorative Floorcloths

A “floorcloth” is a painted canvas alternative to a more expensive carpet. These durable, colorful floor coverings were popular in 19th century America and fit well into both traditional and modern rooms. Participants also learn how to take a design and adapt it for use on their future projects. Participants will finish a 24” x 36” floorcloth.
