Braided Rag Rugs – The Gap, Alice Springs

KirstyRugWebA great way to recycle old clothes and fabric.
Learn to make fantastic rag rugs using an off-loom, spiral-woven braiding technique. This braiding technique weaves in as we go so there is no stitching up required afterward. We share an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities in this workshop, as well as covering cloth and fibre types. Beautiful and unique floor coverings are possible using contrasting colours, or you can blend patterned rags for a ‘carpet of flowers’. I’ll have plenty of cloth scraps for your use, or bring your own material to recycle and find out what riches can come from rags…
