The Nantucket Floorcloth with Mary Emery Lacoursiere

Floorcloths are canvas area rugs. These rugs were popular in 18th century England and could be found in many wealthy-period homes. There were many designs, including wood graining, tiles, and marbling. Eventually, American colonists began to create these durable and functional floor covers. Today floorcloths are a practical floorcovering that allows each student to create a unique piece suited for their home.

Students can select from various cut stencils to create their design. Choose the popular Nantucket Wildflowers designed by Lee Papale, or choose from a selection of traditional patterns.
