Weaving a rug from scraps of fabric is the kind of project that, if it holds one's interest (as it did this lad's) becomes meditative. Strips of fabric are woven outwards from the center in a widening spiral. A rug, a labyrinth? Indeed.
Taught a rug making workshop for children and grown-ups last weekend. Had as much fun as the kids! Demonstrating the steps during the workshop, wove a mini-version of a rug. Afterwards brought it home where it makes a good table mat.
