WHAT:   This is a workshop where you can learn to make beautiful canvas floor mats for your home or place of work.  Creating canvas mats is an old art, which has become popular once again. These mats were initially made from worn out sails from the sailing ships and in time became more and more elaborate.

This workshop is open to all levels.
