Modern Rag Rug Techniques in the Lake District

View from the window


Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rugs. In this session you will learn two versatile rag rug techniques that can be used to make a piece of wall art, homeware, a brooch or more. As rag rugging takes a long time to complete you may not finish your piece in the session (although if you opt to do a brooch you will) but will go away with tools and skills to complete your piece. 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.

Rag rugging techniques differ historically depending on regional areas. In this session you will be learning techniques that grow quicker than some other ones, and use easy to handle ergonomic tools. All materials and tools are supplied.

Your tutor, Kim, graduated from the University of Huddersfield BA Textile Crafts Course in 2012 after specialising in printmaking with an emphasis on creative work with communities. She offers creative workshops across the country, recognising that everyone learns differently. She strongly believes in the benefits of creativity for mental health.
