Bonvilston Reading Rooms, Vale of Glamorgan
Friday 14 March 2014
Between 10.00am and 4.00pm
Like a lot of textile processes rag rugging is a vast subject. It has its roots in the make do and mend era and is basically a recycling craft.
The aim of the day will be to start a hooked or prodded rug as well as being introduced to other types of rug making and rug artists.
Sonia Fox comes from a long line of stitchers. Her grandmother, one of seven children was well tutored in needlework skills and made her living doing it. These skills were passed to her mother who was an accomplished needle woman and Sonia learnt at her knee. Primarily, Sonia is a quilt maker with a special interest in stitching, particularly quilting. Like many she is a textile enthusiast and confesses to being a bit of a ‘flusey’ when it comes to textiles generally “if it takes my fancy I will try it out”.
In addition to the above rag rug workshop Sonia also teaches:
• traditional patchwork – both hand and machine
• quilting – both hand and machine
• contemporary quilt making
• tassel making
The fee for the day is £20.00. To book a place email firstname.lastname@example.org
