Recreate is a sustainable community project of the Mount Pleasant Natural Resource Centre Inc.

This June, Recreate is hosting two interactive up-cycling workshops hosted by talented textile artist Yvonne Dalton. Choose from:

Recreate Rethink Waste Crochet Rag Rugs

Sunday 7th June
9:45am for 10am start 4pm

Learn an inspiring new way to upcycle old sheeting, clothing and scrap fabric. Under Yvonne's friendly instruction, you'll begin making your very own beautiful take-home floor rug using a variety of recycled materials. Yvonne will be on hand to teach you some tips and tricks too, allowing you to crochet just about anything, including wool, threads, plastic bags, old sheeting, baling twine, and video cassette tape! This workshop is designed ages 16 and up and no previous crochet experience is required. It is held in a social and encouraging atmosphere.

Participants should bring a No. 3 & No. 5 crochet hook - all other materials will be provided.

Tea/ coffee and light refreshments will also be served.

Recreate Rethink Waste Upcycled Denim Rugs

Sunday 28th June

9:45am for 10am start 4pm

Learn how to make a woven and stitched rug using old denim jeans. Under Yvonne's guidance, your individually designed take home floor rug will include stretch and non-stretch jean fabric in a variety of shades. Plus remnant fabric and doily offcuts will be added to further embellish your creation. The result will be hard wearing, machine washable and practical!

This workshop is designed ages 14 and up and no previous sewing machine experience is required. It is held in a social and encouraging atmosphere.

Participants should bring a good pair of scissors and a denim sewing needle. They are also encouraged to bring their own sewing machine, however a number of spare machines will be available. All other materials will be provided.

Tea/ coffee and light refreshments will also be served.

The participation cost for both workshops is $55 per person. Bookings are essential.
