Introducing: RAG RUGS

This event has passed Register

Event description

Enjoy a craft-filled afternoon and learn to make your very own eco-friendly Rag Rug that adds colour and comfort to your floor. Enjoy mindfulness in our nurturing community home, while also reducing your waste footprint!

This workshop is about sharing the ancient, deliciously vibrant and satisfying craft of rag rug making. Once popular during the Arts and Craft movement of the early 1900s and of course a necessity during the Great Depression of the 1930s, the process is deeply relaxing and creative.

Participants are introduced to various forms and then shown a simple looping technique for making their own rug. You will be able to continue to divert fabric and clothing from landfill and reduce your waste footprint.

Suitable for 18 + years

Tutor: Sarah Dally

What is provided:
