A great way to recycle old clothes and fabric!
In our second workshop with visual artists Ilka White, we will learn to make fantastic rag rugs using an off-loom, spiral-woven braiding technique, in this one day workshop. We share an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities in these workshops, as well as covering cloth and fibre types.
Date: Saturday 2nd Sept, 10am-4pm
Cost: $120 per person
Places are limited to 12 people and bookings are open now – please share with friends who you think might be interested
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…
Most people’s work by the end of the class is about the size of a dinner plate. The completed size is up to you, and could range from a small mat to a room-sized rug. This workshop gives you all the skills you need to finish off the rug at home.
