Rag Rug Full Day Workshop - Hertfordshire

X

Description

Have fun turning old t-shirts and forgotten favourites into recycled works of art with the age-old skill of rag rugging. In this full day class you will learn all the skills you will need to be able to make unique rag rugs, cushions and art to spice up your home. Careful though, it’s addictive! In this workshop, which is run at our Ragged Life HQ in Great Wymondley, Hertfordshire, you will have the chance to start either a 100 x 60cm rag rug, rag rug cushion, rag rug shopping bag or smaller project. In any of our full day classes you will learn: - How to use the rag rug equipment - How to work with hessian - Materials (selecting & preparing) - How to design for rag rug - Both rag rugging techniques (loopy & shaggy) You will be provided with all the materials you need during the class but as the charm of rag rugging is often in the memories attached to old clothes, you're welcome to bring along any of your own clothing you’d like to incorporate, particularly if you have clothing with sentimental value that you'd like to use. Our founder, Elspeth Jackson, is one of the leading rag ruggers in the country. She is one of the expert teachers at the Knitting & Stitching Show, has had a rag rug book, "Rag Rugs, Pillows & More," published on the subject and is a regular in craft magazines. This class is suitable for all levels but do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

What's included in the price?

This class includes everything you need for your rag rug project but we ask that you bring a packed lunch with you. You'll be provided with tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the class.
