Have fun turning old t-shirts and forgotten favourites into recycled works of art with the age-old skill of rag rugging. In this half 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 you will have the chance to start either a rag rug cushion, rag rug letter or smaller project. We also run specific Rag Rug Christmas Wreath workshops so keep your eyes peeled for seasonal classes. In our classes you will learn: - How to use the rag rug equipment - How to work with hessian - Materials (selecting & preparing) - 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 rag rug teacher, 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 - you'll be in very good hands! This class is suitable for all levels but do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. What COVID-19 precautions will be in place? We’re determined to make the rag rug classes as fun and seamless as possible. We will however have some extra precautions in place to make sure everyone stays safe: - The class will be capped to ensure we observe social distancing - All the rag rug tools will be disinfected before the workshop and at the end of the workshop. - Everyone will be asked to disinfect their hands upon arriving at the workshop and leaving. - Teas, coffees and refreshments will be provided as usual, but we’ll be using single-use compostable cups, or please bring along your own reusable one. - If you would like to buy any rag rug tools at the end of the workshop, we will only be taking card payments (we have an iZettle card machine).
