This workshop is about sharing the ancient, deliciously vibrant and satisfying craft of rag-rug making. Participants are introduced to various rag rug forms and then shown a simple looping technique for making their own rug using fabric scraps or rags. Participants will be given instructions to complete the project at home.
The process is deeply relaxing and creative, not to mention sustainable on a number of levels.
What to bring
- fabric scraps and rags (old sheets and clothes are ideal, or alternatively the haberdashery shop has a range of fabrics available)
- fabric scissors or a rotary cutter
- tea and coffee
