About our CRS Classes

If you want to deepen your rug ID skills, this is truly the best course available. Having taken it in 2017, I felt it helped solidify the foundation I had going in, but also highlighted many areas for improvement: Caucasian rugs, Navajo weaving, and more obscure Iranian rugs were all covered with as much detail as you can handle. Many examples of these rugs were on hand to inspect and handle. From my experience it is one thing to listen to a PowerPoint presentation on rug ID but it is entirely more beneficial to building your ID skills to actually be able to handle the rugs on the spot."
