Modern rag rug techniques day at Scrap

X

Description

Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rags. In this open ended session you'll learn two versatile rag rug techniques that can be used to make a piece of wall art, homewares, a brooch or more. I normally run this as a 2-2.5 hour workshop but have had lots of requests for a longer session! However even with the added time, as rag rugging takes a long time to complete you may not finish your piece in the session (but if you opt to do a brooch you will do) but will go away with tools and skills to complete it. There will be a wide range of fabric scraps, recycled materials, colourful rope, buttons and other things to choose from to make your piece unique.

The workshop will run 11-3, I'd recommend bringing a packed lunch but there is a few cafes in Sunnybank Mills too.
Suitable for over 15s.

During the workshop everyone will have their own materials and tools and sanitiser and disinfectant will be available. If you feel unwell please let us know and stay home. I'd advise people to wear face masks when moving about the space.
The workshop will take place at Scrap Creative Reuse Art Project, an absolutely amazing space full of recycled materials that can be bought and used for all sorts of creativity. It's an inspiring space with a new zero waste refill station too.
