About the event
Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rags. It has a rich history of varying techniques region to region, with a common thread of upcycling scraps into tactile homewares. In this open ended session you'll learn two versatile rag rug techniques that can be used to make a piece of wall art, homewares, a brooch or more. As rag rugging takes a long time to complete you may not finish your piece in the session (but if you opt to do a brooch you will do) but will go away with tools and skills to complete it. There will be a wide range of fabric scraps, recycled materials, colourful rope, buttons and other things to choose from to make your piece unique.
The workshop will be lead by Kim Searle who runs a wide range of sustainable workshops as Darn It! Workshops. If you have any questions message firstname.lastname@example.org
