Rags to Riches (4 Day Workshop)
7 – 10 March 2016
Explore a variety of approaches to weaving and sculptural construction in this experimental, hands-on workshop. Rags lend themselves beautifully to looping, twining and coiling, crochet, string plying and braiding, soumak, pile and other forms of weaving. Bring your own material to recycle and let Ilka’s inspiring examples from across the globe show you just what riches can come from rags… Further Info and Bookings>
Braided Rag Rugs (2 Day Workshop)
Ilka shares an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities in this off-loom, spiral-woven braiding workshop. This technique weaves in as you go so there is no stitching up required afterward. A great way to recycle old clothes and fabric!
