Rug Making Workshop - Parra Pickers December 2019
Date and Time
In this DIY workshop, you will learn how to create unique and functional circular rugs (see photos), coasters and bowls through repurposing bedlinen or other woven fabric remnants. By the end of the class you will have created the centre of your rug/coaster/bowl and have the skills to complete the project at home as well as acquiring the knowledge to create more up-cycled handmade rugs from scratch. We challenge you to a better gift this Christmas for any of your loved ones, after all, who doesn't need a handmade rug in their homes.
This workshop is for kids (10 +) and adults.
Parent-Children duos will make a great pair to do this workshop with.
