Berea College’s Crafts program began in 1893 with its weaving studio. In this video, students demonstrate how they weave a placemat. Placemats are woven on a loom and finished by a seamstress. Weavers demonstrate how to prepare a loom for a weaving project, and then how to operate the loom. A seamstress demonstrates how to cut and finish the edges of the placemat.
