Rag Rug Workshop with Tania Skevos

August 12th 2018 5PM-8:30PM


Making your own rugs is a beautiful way to add color and texture to your home, as well as to minimize textile waste. In this class, we will make a circular rug using a big crochet hook and yarn made from scrap fabric.

Knowledge of crochet is not required. The class will cover all the basic stitches needed as well as best techniques for cutting strips and adding new colors to your designs.

There will be plenty of fabric on hand for use in class but you are welcome to bring your own lightweight woven or jersey fabric, including old T-shirts and sheets. This is a great way to repurpose those favorite garments that may have been outgrown, stained, or ripped. 

You will go home with a completed small rug or the start of something bigger, your crochet hook, and a new outlook on old textiles!

The class will be held at Gravel & Gold
