Rag Rug Weaving with Rachel Ehlin
San Dielgo based textile artist Rachel Ehlin of @mrblueskye came out to our shop earlier this Spring to teach silk rag weaving. Here's some highlights from the class. Each student used silk sari rags - Rachel picked out a beautiful desert inspired palette, repurposed old Indian fabrics cutting them into yarn size strips. Student picked out their colored striped and created beautiful one of a kind woven pieces. Some students decided to display as wallhangings and others finished the ends to create a small but very special rug. A wonderful hands afternoon of working with our hands and getting to leave with a finished artwork - super rewarding. Thanks Rachel!
