Rush mats…

Another great afternoon at the Butterfly Art and Craft studio in Essex. This group made fabulous rush mats. This is a great beginners workshop to get used the material and how it behaves.

We started with a check weave in the centre and secured this with a pairing weave. After six rows of pairing we finished with a very simple border. The mats need to be dried before trimming.
