Come and learn how to create a wool rug using a traditional Portuguese tapestry technique. Your tutor Sonia learned this craft in her native Portugal as a child and will guide you through the techniques for creating a rug to a design of your choice. During the first session you will choose your design and colours and practice the technique on a sample piece of hessian - your chosen wools will be brought to the following session. Sonia has a range of traditional and contemporary patterns for you to choose from or bring your own - cross stitch patterns can be sized up and used. You will be working on creating a rug approximately 1 metre 10 cm by 75cm in size and all materials, sourced from Portugal by Sonia, will be included in the cost of the course. This is a unique opportunity to learn a dying traditional craft to create a personalised heirloom rug for your home. The rugs can be machine washed on a wool cycle and will last a lifetime

Course run on Saturdays 10am - 1pm
