Event description
BYO drink and get eco-creative as you learn how to turn used fabrics into a rug or wallhanging masterpiece.

About this Event

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create a contemporary rag rug masterpiece, using traditional rag rugging techniques.

No prior experience necessary, all abilities welcome.

Time

Doors open at 6:30 for a 6:45 start. Sessions run for approximately three hours.

What to Bring

Please bring three to four items of unwanted clothing–most fabrics will work. You’ll re-use these fabrics, turning them into your boho wall hanging.

If you don’t have any, you can source them free or at a low cost, from friends, family, a local thrift shop, or put a call out on your local Buy Nothing Facebook group.

If you have plenty to choose from, choose the colours you love or colours that work well together, for example:

  • whites, yellows, greens, blues
  • whites, yellows, oranges, reds
  • whites, pinks, purples
  • mixed pastels
  • mixed brights
  • whites, greys, blacks
  • complimentary colours contrast well–these are opposites on the colour wheel, like orange and blue, or red and green.
