AFS: Stenciled Floorcloth with Janet Flinchbaugh

June 2, 2023 @ 9:00 am - June 3, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


Create your own floorcloth in either a traditional pattern, arts and crafts style or a game board pattern using environmentally safe water-based paints and finishes. You will learn to cut a stencil, choose a pattern and the odors of your choice.Ê Several different techniques will be taught as well. The use of painted floor coverings or ÒOyl clothsÓ dates to 14th century Europe. People coming to this country wanted to reproduce furnishings from back home. Since resources were limited, worn sails from ships were painted and used toÊcover their floors.ÊFloorcloths proved to be one of the most durable floorcoverings providing extra insulation on the floors of drafty homes. Create your own artful and durable floorcloth that will last for generations. NOTE: Location: 1746 U.S. 9, Lake George, NY 12845, Alfred Z.
