Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rags. In this open ended session you'll learn two versatile rag rug techniques that can be used to make a piece of wall art, homewares, a brooch or more. As rag rugging takes a long time to complete you may not finish your piece in the session (but if you opt to do a brooch you will do) but will go away with tools and skills to complete it. There will be a wide range of fabric scraps, recycled materials, colourful rope, buttons and other things to choose from to make your piece unique.
The workshop will run from 6:30-8:30 but will be open from 6 if you'd like to come for your tea beforehand. I highly recommend it! Peppercorn's food is delicious with a great range of main meals and delicious cakes.
Peppercorn is a fantastic vegan cafe located at 53 Trinity Street, Huddersfield, HD1 4DN. It's in a great location with lots of free street parking nearby alongside Greenhead Park. It's about a 15 minute walk from the centre of town and less than a 10 min walk from the nearby train and bus stations. There is also a bus stop on the opposite side of the road.
The cafe is up a few sets of steps so is not wheelchair accessible.
There's lots of free street parking nearby however I would recommend arriving a bit earlier as sometimes the parking immediately nearby is scarce. The train and bus station are also very nearby.
The workshop needs minimum numbers to run. In the unlikely event it doesn't meet this the workshop will be cancelled. Your booking is secured by payment and if you choose to cancel you get a refund up to 7 days before the event however after that no refund can be given.
There will be hand sanitiser available, social distancing in place and spaces will be limited. You'll be required to wear a mask unless medically exempt. If you feel unwell, have symptoms of covid or have been in contact with anyone who has please let me know so you can be moved onto a future session. If we go into another lockdown this workshop will be postponed until a safe date.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
