Great Makers Exchange Workshop: Mini Mug Rugs

Saturday, August 18, 2018 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Great Makers Exchange 2018

Dip your toes into the world of rug making by creating a mini “mug rug” suitable for use as a coaster or toy rug! Instructor Melba Granlund will share the unique Scandinavian-American tradition of “toothbrush rugs,” which combines very old nålbinding techniques with a modern tool – sturdy toothbrush handles – to create hardwearing rugs out of fabric scraps. Whether you’ve tried nålbinding or rug braiding before or not, you’re sure to learn a fun new technique in this workshop and head home ready to knot up some more rugs!

Ages 12 and up welcome to register.

Materials Fee

A $5 materials fee is payable to the instructor at the beginning of the class.
