Event description

Hooked Rag Rug Workshop

Australian Design Centre, Wednesday 12th October, 1 pm – 4 pm

At this workshop for Sydney Craft Week you will learn an easy and enjoyable technique for making hooked rugs from old worn-out woollen garments and fabric. This craft, invented out of necessity in times past, is having a resurgence today as we look for ways to conserve resources and beautify our surroundings. There is great satisfaction in redirecting materials that would otherwise go to waste into a unique handmade object — a rug for the floor — which is imbued with history. By the end of the workshop you will have discovered the history of rag rugs, learnt how to choose and prepare materials, learnt the technique of hooking and started making a small sample rug. You will leave brimming with ideas for future rug hooking projects! 

All materials and equipment are provided, and no experience is necessary. This workshop is limited to 12 people.
