    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    A great way to recycle old clothes and fabric! Learn to make fantastic rag rugs using an off-loom, spiral-woven braiding technique. In this workshop with textile artist Ilka White, we will share an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities, as well as covering cloth and fibre types. Beautiful and unique floor coverings are possible using contrasting colours, or you can blend patterned rags for a ‘carpet of flowers’. This braiding technique works in a circular fashion, weaving in as we go so there is no stitching up required afterwards.

    Most people's work by the end of the class is about the size of a bread & butter plate. The completed size is up to you, and could range from a small mat to a room-sized rug. This workshop covers all the skills you need to finish off your rug at home.

    Bring your own material to recycle and find out just what riches can come from rags!

    Workshop cost $120 + booking fee
