Co będziecie robić

This is a fun creative class that any adult can do. You will hear fascinating stories about the Maine lobstering history as you receive professional weaving instruction. Not only will you enjoy learning to weave, but you will take home a colorful, durable all-season doormat.

We will meet at Thistledown Farm behind Penny’s authentic 1850s barn, in a large canvas tent classroom. Penny will describe the history behind the colorful rope used in lobstering. After her brief talk, you will dive right in. Your experienced instructor will help you choose your rope and doormat design, show you how to set up your jig, and splice the rope. She will provide ongoing assistance and tips as you nourish your soul, awaken your creative genius, and create your masterpiece. After everyone has finished their mat, we will hang them up for a photoshoot.

Class size is limited so there is plenty of space for achieving social distancing.
Dress appropriately for hot weather. Classes are held in a large canvas tent.
This activity requires at least 2-3 hours of standing, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

Penny founded the Maine Float Rope Co, home of Down East Doormats, starting New England's craze for the unique colorful lobster trap rope mats. These fun and durable rugs were featured in Elle, Bon Appetite, Down East Magazine, Yankee, Architectural Digest, Martha Stewart and many more. They were sold throughout the US and internationally. Down East Doormats was the Winner of Best New Product at the New England Products Show. Penny's aesthetic sense of design can be seen not only in her doormats but as evidenced in her 1850s repurposed post and beam barns which she has turned into her charming AirBnB rentals, Thistledown Farm’s Pennysworth, Udder Heaven, Sheep Shed Cottage, Penny's Perch, The Pemaquid and The Penobscot.

What an amazing time! Giselle was a great instructor and made learning to weave our mats so much fun. The weather was dreary but we were never cold or uncomfortable in the tent. Chad is not usually into the crafty things but he had so much fun he wants to come back to make more. Penny's stories of the Lobster industry were delightful. Our mats turned out beautiful. Would highly recommend.

This was a fun and interesting experience. Penny and Giselle are great hosts and they provided lots of guidance, assistance and interesting background on the ropes. It was a wonderful way to spend a morning in Maine. Coming home with a beautiful mat was a plus.

This was such a neat experience! A wonderful weaving lesson from Giselle and some great background info about lobster fishing from Penny. My mom and I were so pleased with the mats we made.

This was the first “experience” I’ve booked through Air bnb. Won’t b my last. But this is gonna be hard to top. I pulled into a beautiful setting at Thistledown Farm and was immediately welcomed by Giselle (weaver/teacher) who immediately made me feel welcome. Ours was a small class of four, I was the only newbie..says a lot for an experience with three “repeaters”. I cannot express how knowledgeable and patient Giselle was. She truly is an artist as well as a natural teacher. She guided me in every way yet let me make the final choices.. I had an amazing morning working with the other ladies. Everyone was so complimentary of each others work. Anyone can go out and buy one of these beautiful mats but it’s another to make your own. I’m filled with pride to learn a new skill and can’t wait to return. PS Penny let me have a peek around her beautiful barn. What an amazing piece if history while yet so welcoming and warm!!!! Ellen
