Rag rug making course in North Herefordshire

Progged spiral seat mat - recycled tee shirts


Learn two traditional techniques in a day and make a sampler, a seat mat, start a rug or decorate a bag.

Progging consists of pulling small rectangles of fabric through a hessian base to create a shaggy effect. Hooking is used for pictorial projects when thin strips of fabric or yarn are hooked through hessian, easiest on some kind of frame. You can try both techniques or focus on one.

Jenni's teacher made rag rugs for over 50 years and Jenni has enjoyed sharing the craft for years. Signed copies of her books 'More Rag Rugs & Recycled Textile Projects' & 'An Introduction to RAG RUGS - creative recycling' will be available at the workshop.
(Warning - this craft can be addictive!)
Social distancing etc. will be observed.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Hot drinks and biscuits are included. You bring scissors and rags (more details when you book). Jenni will have tools to try/buy (or bring granny's), books, hessian for sale and rags if you can't bring any (let her know).

Really enjoyed the day. Jenni explains everything very clearly and she was on hand all day to answer questions. She showed us examples of her work and was very supportive. The group was relatively small, which actually made it even nicer!

Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:

It's easier to help individuals with a small group. I enjoyed the day too with such interesting women who worked hard at their progging and hooking.
