Braided Rag Rugs – Ink & Spindle

RagRug Red ScissorsA special workshop in Ink & Spindle’s beautiful studio at the Abbotsford Convent and great way to recycle old cloth!

Using a combination of your own upcycled clothes and Ink & Spindle beautiful fabrics, learn to make fantastic rag rugs using an off-loom, spiral-woven braiding technique. We share an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities in this one day workshop. 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…
