Sept 24th: Program with Carolyn Carleton Browe

Elk studio tour around 2:30 PM

Carolyn has shown her handwoven and felt pieced rug work locally and nationally.  She has worked from her production studio, Carleton Designs, for the past 36 years. She is currently exploring floor-covering ideas in merino wool felt.
For Carolyn, “Rugs are a canvas inviting exploration of design within the parameters of function. Whether woven, pieced or stitched, the interplay of color, graphic, texture and structure challenges and inspires me in the making of rugs that will last generations.”30000 Greenwood Road  Elk, Ca 95432  (7078773540)
