Through expert guidance and instruction, participants will be led through the history, given the tools, materials, and all supplies needed to create your own 3'X4' floor cloth of your OWN design.
This day-long workshop, with mid-day break, is set in Molly Kool's childhood home (at the East gate of Fundy National Park) overlooking the beautiful Bay of Fundy. Molly's home was originally built in an era when floor cloths were common floor coverings -- they're the precursor to modern day linoleum and vinyl flooring! Created on special canvas sail-cloth and prepared with quality paints, your unique floorcloth will become a treasured, useful heirloom.
