All these pictures are from our workshop at the museum. The children coming to the rya rug exhibition are offered to try out spinning on the spinning wheel and the drop spindle, carding wool and either sew some rya or make rya knots on the loom.
Above are a pic of my loom and working space. I´m making an hourglass figure on my small rya rug. It doesn´t look like anything yet but I´m slowly making progress.
Next week we´ll have a bunch of kids here so I hope we are able to inspire them and hopefully some of them will feel the spark which ignites the need to make handicrafts in the future!!!!!
