Hooked rag rug making workshop with Vita Cochran

When

Wednesday 12 October from 1pm to 4pm

Learn an easy and enjoyable technique for making hooked rugs from old worn-out woollen garments and fabric.

The craft of rag rug making, invented out of necessity in times past, is having a resurgence today as we look for ways to conserve resources and beautify our surroundings. There is great satisfaction in redirecting materials that would otherwise go to waste into a unique handmade object imbued with history.

By the end of the workshop, you will have discovered the history of rag rugs, learnt how to choose and prepare materials, learnt the technique of hooking and started making a small sample rug. You will leave brimming with ideas for future projects.

All materials and equipment are provided, and no experience is necessary. The workshop is suitable for kids accompanied by an adult.

This event is part of the Sydney Craft Week Festival 7-16 October 2022.

SCW is an Australian Design Centre initiative. View the complete festival program.
