About The Event

Using recycled fabrics, hessian and a wonderful ‘rag rugger’, learn the skills needed to create your own rug, cushion or wall hanging. Either bring along your own materials or use ours (or maybe a mixture of both).

We’ll provide plenty of fabric but, if you have any treasured old clothes, please do bring them along. T shirts work particularly well, but you can use this age-old technique with any fabric.

In this workshop you will be introduced to the technique of shaggy rag rugging and also taught how to cut the yarn strips, bind edges and finish your creation professionally. No prior experience necessary at all.

Includes hessian and fabrics plus the use of rag ruggers, wooden gauge, dressmaking scissors, cutting mat and tools, together with lots of tea, coffee and home made cake.

Tools will be available to purchase at the end of the class if you’d like to do so.
