Loading map tiles. Please wait...

Working in a museum environment for many years inspired heritage arts instructor Helen Sluis to learn how to recreate a wide variety of 19th century handcrafts including rag rugs. Participants at this workshop will learn a centuries-old technique of rug braiding that requires no sewing and produces a rug that is very durable, reversible and machine-washable (if under 3 feet in diameter). Oval, round, and square forms will be demonstrated. Rag rugs and smaller projects, such as the trivet-sized piece that will be made during the course, are perfect for both traditional and modern homes and can be made to suit any decor. Space is limited and Helen’s workshops fill up fast, so call to register soon! All materials are provided by the instructor.

 

Ten per cent member discount. Advance registration required.

 

$40 per participant plus HST
