The materials will be provided. All rugs are made out of recycled materials: old clothing, duvets covers and blankets etc.

The process of making allows people to relax their mind. It helps with mental health, depression, especially anxiety.

Crafting Beauty from Recycled Threads: Every thread tells a story, and in our rug making workshop, those stories intertwine to create something truly remarkable. We find inspiration in the diversity of materials we work with – each piece carrying memories, comfort, and history. As we meticulously handcraft these threads into intricate patterns and designs, a sense of accomplishment washes over us, knowing that we’re not just making rugs, but also contributing to a more sustainable planet.

A Meditative Journey of Creativity: Rug making isn’t just about the final product; it’s about the process itself. As our hands work rhythmically, weaving and knotting, we enter a state of calm that transcends everyday worries. It’s a meditative experience that allows us to escape the hustle and bustle, finding solace in the present moment. This creative meditation has been proven to have positive effects on mental health, offering relief from stress, anxiety, and depression.

Crafting for the Mind and the Planet: Our rug making workshop isn’t only a haven for artistic expression but also a sanctuary for the environment. By using recycled materials, we reduce our ecological footprint and actively contribute to a cleaner, greener world. Each rug is a testament to our commitment to sustainable living, showcasing the beauty that can emerge from reimagining what we already have.

Join the Rug-Making Community: Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or someone looking for a therapeutic outlet, our rug making workshop welcomes everyone. Unleash your creativity, find inner peace, and contribute to a more sustainable future. Come and learn the art of weaving stories into threads, and threads into rugs that bring warmth to both homes and hearts.
