Certified Rug Specialist Class in Dallas, Texas Day 5
On the 5th day of our Certified Rug Specialist class, we had 25 rugs from different regions of Iran and also from other countries to identify. The range of identifying the rugs was from missing 2 to 8. I missed 3 rugs. There was on small Qaradjeh and I thought it was a Heriz rug. There was a very small 2 x 3 Farahan Sarouk tightly woven which I thought it was Bidjar. And there was a very old Afshar rug thatI missed and thought it was a Caucasian Shirwan rug wool on wool. It was fun and informative.
There is a participant who has been sent to our class by his company. He is so worried about passing the exam on the last day. He say my boss said if you fail the class, don't come to work; just kep flying!
Ellen Amirkhan and Aaron Groseclose then reveiwed all the rugs with the students to see why the identifying some pieces was not properly done.
