Learn the art of rug braiding with artist, Ilka White for a special-skills based master class. Ilka shares a wonderful way to weave old clothes into beautiful rugs using an off-loom, spiral braiding technique. Participants can bring their own material to recycle and find out what riches can come from rags.

Ilka White is an artist and teacher whose practice spans textiles, sculpture, cross-disciplinary collaboration and art-in-community. Direct engagement with the natural world and a love for ‘primary’ skills and world textile traditions inform the way she lives, makes, and teaches.
