Event description

Description

A great way to recycle old clothes and fabric!

Learn to make fantastic rag rugs using an off-loom, spiral-woven braiding technique. We share an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities in this one day workshop. Beautiful and unique floor coverings are possible using contrasting colours, or you can blend patterned rags for a ‘carpet of flowers’. This braiding technique weaves in as we go so there is no stitching up required afterward. Bring your own material to recycle and find out what riches can come from rags...

To Bring:

1. Your Lunch
2. Fabric Scissors
3. Clipboard to anchor your braiding (or a magazine and large bulldog clip will do).
4. Slender crochet hook (approx size 4 or 5).
5. If you have examples of recycled rag rugs in your possession, or pictures, please bring them along for show and tell !
6. Clean, worn out cloth you would like to cut into rags for your rug samples:

We will be sending more information out closer to the date on exactly whaat to bring, so please keep and eye on your inbox!

Tea and Coffee will be available.
