Upcycled Fabric Rugs (Knit or Crochet)
Warm your feet and your floors with a crocheted or knit rug. Inspired by the age-old craft of rag rugs Gayle Walford has helped to divert hundreds of pounds of discarded fabric from going into the landfill by upcycling it. Her upcycling process begins with dyeing the fabric and then converting it into convenient, brightly coloured balls of fabric yarn that are ideal for knitting and crocheting rugs, chair cushions and more. Traditional rag rugs involve a lot of ripping, snipping and joining of fabric strips which takes a considerable amount of time. But with ready made fabric yarn you can whip up a rug in no time!
Requires basic knit and crochet skills. Patterns and materials will be provided. There will be enough yarn to make a mid-size rug and you can choose your colour at the first class. Crochet hooks & circular knitting needles will be available for purchase at the class.
