Hooked rag rugs using memory textiles

Inspirational garden studio


Rag rugs were traditionally hooked using recycled fabrics and old clothing to keep homes warm and block out drafts.

Get started on making a rug to your own design using vintage or repurposed textiles; make rugs full of memories using fabric which has meaning for you. Satisfyingly quick and easy to learn and environmentally friendly too!

Bring your own favourite fabrics, or I can provide some to get you going.

Relaxed crafting in a beautiful rural garden setting.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

A selection of fabrics and tools. Refreshments and home-made cake.
