Transform unwanted fabric and clothing into functional rugs and mats with textile artist Bec Anderson.
In this workshop you will learn the basics of rug making. I will teach you how to recycle and revive old fabrics and clothing with dye.
We begin on a small piece, such as a cushion or mat. This workshop prepares you for making bigger and better rugs of your own.
We will be doing some dyeing to make that old fabric new again, discuss design ideas and there will be time in the afternoon to just slip into the groove and get hooking. All techniques have a recycling bent, in these times of excess, this is a craft that will cost you very little, and at the same time reuses old clothing, linen and leftover yardage from other projects.
