BYO drink and get eco-creative in time for Christmas and turn used fabrics into a chic boho round rug.

In this create and sip class, you’ll learn a simple, traditional round rug making technique. You’ll whip up your very own simple rugging tool and create a boho fabric trivet. Or start a gorgeous round rug for your floor–then get crafty at home to complete it.

By then you’ll have the technique down pat and will be crafting like a pro. You’ll have it finished while binge-watching your favourite tv series!

No prior experience necessary, all abilities welcome.

Time
Doors open at 6:30 for a 6:45 start. Sessions run for approximately three hours.

What to Bring
Please bring a bag of unwanted clothing or bed sheets/quilt covers. Cottons work well for this type of rug (e.g. shirts or t-shirts), but most fabrics will work. You’ll re-use these fabrics, turning them into your boho rag rug.

If you don’t have any, you can source them free or at a low cost, from friends, family, a local thrift shop, or put a call out on your local Buy Nothing Facebook group.

If you have plenty to choose from, choose the colours you love or colours that work well together, for example:
whites, yellows, greens, blues
whites, yellows, oranges, reds
whites, pinks, purples
mixed pastels
mixed brights
whites, greys, blacks
complimentary colours contrast well–these are opposites on the colour wheel, like orange and blue, or red and green.
