Learn traditional rag rug techniques at Wool@J13

Progged cotton seat mats

About the Course

Learn progging or hooking in a one hour session at a very woolly show near Penkridge. This craft is relaxing, creative and can be addictive!

Jenni has been sharing the techniques for years and has written two books about rag rug making which she only started as a hobby but was soon hooked. Whole families used to make rag rugs during the winter and it's very accessible to all, even if you aren't 'arty'. Learn how to upcycle that fabric stash or old clothes.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

A piece of hessian backing and some rags but bring some if you'd like to choose colours or recycle
old tee shirts. There will be tools to try and buy, if you wish.

Camping can be arranged through the organisers.

I attended the one day course held by Jenni Stuart-Anderson at the Blue Ginger Gallery, near Malvern on 31 August.

We were shown how to work both techniques and were soon given the chance to have a go ourselves. Were able to see examples of Jenni's work which helped us decide which technique we wanted to attempt first.

The lunch provided by the Blue Ginger Gallery was a lovely home-made soup with freshly baked bread and the course itself took place in the small Summer House which provided a very friendly atmosphere.

I enjoyed the day very much and found it very useful.

Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:

I enjoyed the day too Jackie and I look forward to seeing your finished seat mat photo which I can put on the students' page of my website. Keep on progging!
