Cost: $85/ $95. Tools: $10

I am heading out to Monto for an adventure and thought I might get some rugmaking going while I am there.

My friend Emma has offered to host a Bohemian Braid Workshop in her creative space "The Hub".

I love this rugmaking technique for its simplicity and practicality.

Bohemian Braid AKA Nalbinding, (needle binding in Danish) it is an ancient form of knitting used for making rugs, hats, baskets and even pet beds. This simple knotting technique makes very functional rugs that are machine washable and useful anywhere in the house.

Up cycling at its very best, you will learn how to transform old sheets and yardage with dye to create the colors you desire and then make rugs from them.

You will have the opportunity to add to the communal dye pot and take home your transformed yardage.

What to Bring:

Sewing Scissors

Old Sheets and

leftover Fabric (at least 1m wide)

Water Bottle

Bucket or plastic bag for taking wet dyestuff home

BYO lunch or share in the warming vegetarian friendly soup with sourdough, made by my dear friend Bronwyn. Cost is $10 payable on the day. Email here to order by Tuesday 26th July.
