Rag Rug Weaving Workshop (FREE) - Willagee Community CentreJoin us for a weaving workshop where you learn the art of rag rug making and contribute to a large-scale arts project that will ‘seal’ a mining site in the Goldfields in an act of hope and healing.Reclaim the Void was born from Ngalia elders in Leonora, Western Australia, expressing their pain and grief at ‘those gaping mining holes left all over our country’. The idea was conceived to symbolically ‘seal’ one of the holes with an artwork expressing the story of country.The vision is to cover a mining pit with a large-scale ‘dot’ artwork made up of thousands of handmade circular rag-rugs woven from discarded fabric. Woven by people from all walks of life and backgrounds, the rugs will be joined together into a giant textile artwork which shows an overall pattern that carries the story of the Tjukurrpa of the country on which the pit is situated.Take part in this free workshop and be part of this beautiful project.
