Scandinavian Rag Rug Workshop at the NGLVC
January 19, 2023 - 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Scandinavian loop weaving is a simple and durable technique that uses no thread or looms, and turns trash into treasure! Bring 1-2 old bed sheets (any size will work) or other fabric that can be easily torn into strips, and a pair of sharp scissors. Some extra materials will be on hand. You will take your rug home to finish. Younger students are welcome with an adult helper. Meet at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center in Ashland, WI, from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Space is limited. Register by January 18 at nglvc.org. $15 per person. This program is led by Emily Stone of the Cable Natural History Museum and is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Historical Society and Friends of the Center. Call Emily at 715-798-3890 for more information on project details, or Rose at 715-685-9983 for visitor center related questions.
