Textiles: Rags to Riches with Karan Fixter

Ref: C2346100

By recycling your old t-shirts or favourite fabrics you can revamp your home with personal and unique rugs or table mats. This one-day course will give you all the techniques and methods to make fabulous mats and rugs. You can make memory rugs from all those garments you cannot bear to part with, but are cluttering up your drawers. That dress that won't fit any more, children's clothing, sheet and blankets, too small, that are obsolete but hang around, and so on. Don't dump it, make it an heirloom with a story to tell.
