Description

Join Naomi of The Sewloist to learn the technique of making rugs from up-cycled fabric and remnants.

Using only a safety pin and strips of fabric we will weave together a rug.

Making rag rugs is a great way to up-cycle bed linen, old clothing, and to make use of your growing fabric stash.

We will provide a selection of fabrics to work with on the day however you are welcome to bring your own lightweight woven cottons that can be torn into strips to make your rag rug. Old sheets and doona covers and cotton fabrics are suitable.

This workshop gives you the starting point and technique for making rag rugs, however the process of making your own rug will take more than 2 hours.  This means that you will be taking your project home with you to complete.


Suitable for: Participants 12+.  Participants 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note, the number of tickets that you can choose from to purchase reflects the number of total tickets still available, if you cannot select multiple tickets it means there is only 1 ticket/space left in this workshop.

18 September 2020 • Rag Rugs with The Sewloist

Lovely workshop with Naomi (The Sewloist) with a variety of materials on hand to start making your own rag rug. Venue was nice and relaxing, and our small group allowed Naomi to give us lots of personal attention when our stitches started getting wonky!
