How to make a braided rag rug

Join the extremely talented Ilka White and make your own Braided Rag Rug here at ORTO Farm.
We will start with a very brief introduction and tour of ORTO then leap deeply into making fantastic rag rugs using an off-loom, spiral-woven braiding technique.

This braiding technique weaves in as we go so there is no stitching up required afterward. It’s a great way to recycle your old clothes and household textiles!  We cover an inspiring range of colour and design possibilities in this full day workshop. Beautiful and unique floor coverings are possible using contrasting colours, or you can blend patterned rags for a ‘carpet of flowers’. Bring your own worn outmaterial to recycle and discover what riches can come from rags…

Vegetarian lunch, grazing platter and hot and cold drinks provided. Arrivederci! Cari amici.


Refund Policy:

I am extremely sorry to say that it’s not possible to give refunds once payment is made, nor to change your booking to a different date or different class, regardless of reason, or lead up time. You can however sell your ticket to another.

We look forward to meeting you! Much huge care and all the very best, from Mara.
