Rag Rugs on a Peg Loom

Featured Image

 

Peg loom weaving is a quick and easy craft to learn.

This simple form of weaving teaches everyone, kids included, the basics of traditional weaving. Some think this style of weaving goes back to Viking times, and it’s easy to imagine this highly practical method of creating thick cloth being used in simpler times.

Using a collection of rovings, or thick unspun bits of wool, even absolute beginners can create something impressive quite quickly.

We will use a range of materials to create a practical piece of art, including wool, recycled material, sheep and alpaca fleece, and natural materials foraged from the garden.

Tea, coffee and homemade cakes and scones included in the cost of the workshop, which is based in my workshop, close to the shores of Strangford Lough.
