Rag rugs and autumn term activities at WDC

One more adult workshop to complete this term ” creating rag rugs” on Saturday the 28th of July,  a great activity for those who love textiles and reusing materials.I love the freedom of creating work using fabric as a paint pallet, once you get to grips with the techniques it is such a relaxing craft.

And just to let you know about the workshops that I will be running at the WDC  in the autumn.

Starting with handcrafted fabric doorstop, followed by willow lanterns and quirky paper mache sculptures

I will also be offering more crochet classes and returning to lino block printing – creating cards.
