Rag Quilting Workshop at the Charleston Museum – July 28

Rag Quilting Workshop
July 28
The Charleston Museum
360 Meeting Street

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 us 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 purchase tickets.
