Certified Rug Specialist Class in Dallas, Texas Day 4
Today was Thursday and the 4th day of Certified Rug Specialist class held by Restoration Industry Association in Dallas, Texas. Instructors Ellen Amirkhan and Aaron Groseclose talked about non-Iranian rugs such as Indian rugs, Pakistani rugs, Chinese rugs, Afghan rugs, Turkish rugs and few other types of rugs. Many samples from these rugs were shown to the class and their characteristics were explained.
Ellen talked in length about hos we should appraise a rug. Legal issues as well as technical issues should be taken into account.
We went to the hotel few minutes after 5:00 pm. We had started the class at 8:00 am and everybody was tired. Kevin did not want to joint us, but the rest of the kids (!) seven of us went to a nearby BBQ restaurant for diner. After that, Barry and I went to a shop on our way to the hotel and bought few small gifts for the family members. I got home, studied the rug material for a while, posted a brief story and went to bed around 11:00 pm.
