Weave a small mat or cushion pad using a wide range of recycled and natural materials using a pegloom.
At this workshop we will weave a cushion pad sized mat from rags and/or sheep fleece. Using the wonderful South American loom which is quick and easy to use you are guaranteed to make a finished piece.
We will use local wool which will be ready washed, some will be natural colours and some dyed with natural and acid dyes. We will have carders available for preparing the wool.
Weaving wonderful peg loom rugs is possible with recycled rags and plastics too and a colourful assortment will be available for you to use
All looms and materials will be provided and on sale. You are welcome to bring your own loom and other tools if you have these.
Great recycling skills and stunning results expected!
