Event Series: The Braided Rag Rug Project
The Braided Rag Rug Project
June 9 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Join Island Farm historic interpreters in making a traditional braided rug out of scrap fabric, or “rags”. Popularized in the early American colonies, and still prevalent in home magazines today, this simple rug is the perfect group activity. Staff will guide visitors through the process of creating this thrifty and ingenious item while providing historical context. This activity is included with general admission to Island Farm.
