Rag Quilting Workshop | Charleston Museum | JULY 28 

  • Charleston Museum 360 Meeting Street Charleston, SC, 29403 United States (map)

Project TIME!

Join Sharon Cooper-Murray, the Gullah Lady, for a lecture and hands-on workshop about the folk art tradition of rag quilting. Dating to the antebellum period, feed and grain sacks were combined with rag strips to make these unique quilts. Traditionally passed from generation to generation, Cooper-Murray was taught the process by Gullah women from Wadmalaw and Johns Island. She has since set out on a mission to preserve this disappearing art form. Join the Charleston Museum for a fascinating workshop to learn more about this traditional craft and start your own project!  Each participant should bring their own scissors. All other materials are provided by the instructor.  Space is limited; Reservations are required. Click HERE to sign up.

Cost: $50 for members, $65 for non-members
