A great day rag rugging with Jenni! I learnt lots, and have been able to finish the project at home. And I feel inspired to do more. Jenni gave us information at a good pace, letting us practice the things she taught us. Lots of items on show that she had previously made, giving us inspiration for our own creations. Would recommend the course to anyone.
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:Looking forward to seeing your project Ceri, and glad you feel inspired to do more rag rug making. I enjoyed the company on our day workshop.
Jenni’s course on October 23 was excellent. It was a comprehensive introduction to something I knew nothing about. However, I now have the knowledge and confidence to do more pogging and explore with my rags.
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:Looking forward to seeing what you create with your rags Audrey. The techniques are so accessible and I enjoyed sharing with you. I am really glad you are inspired to get creative.
Very good , very friendly and welcoming
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:So glad you felt welcomed - I certainly enjoy sharing enthusiasm for upcycling and encouraging people to explore their creativity.
I'd thoroughly recommend Jenni's rag rugging course. It was a perfect mix of inspiration and instruction. Lovely, informal atmosphere, with a delicious lunch and lots of tea and coffee to keep the chat flowing. I don't consider myself creative but, under Jenni's tuition, I was really happy with the seat pad I produced. It's such an accessible and addictive craft! Thank you Jenni.
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:So glad we were able to go ahead with the workshop and I enjoyed meeting you and sharing some techniques. I hope to see your seat mat and that you are inspired to make more. Happy progging!
Really great workshop day with Jenni. Thoroughly enjoyed making a rag rug and intend to keep doing this at home as a new crafting hobby. Jenni explained all the techniques clearly and showed us examples and ideas and we were able to make progress really quickly. Really delicious lunch provided and cups of tea too. Lots of happy working chat. A lovely day. Thank you.
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:I enjoyed sharing techniques and chatting with you. I have made quite a few friends on workshops. Looking forward to seeing your seat mat.
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.
Great course very inspirational
Jenni's courses are such a treat and so inspirational. This course is set in the most beautiful tranquil location and the lunch is amazing. The course is very well taught and provides the perfect balance of teaching, free practice and individual tuition. Jenni is very helpful but not overbearing or bossy!
This is my second course with Jenni and I have loved both of them. Thank you
Have ever thought about a rag rug making course? Will I can highly recommend jenni's rag rug course it is fantastic. Very clear helpful instructions, with all the necessary equipment provided on the day to get you started. If you become hooked! You can purchase books, DVDs, hessian etc. Set in a great location and to top it all a wonderful lunch cooked by Lorenzo. All in all a great day with an added bonus of coming away with a new skill.
Great Course - I am now hooked and rag rugging away merrily! Jenni's
instructions very clear and tips on how to combine different colours and
weights of textiles helpful. The day flew by and we learned progging as well
as hooked rugs - inspirational !. Setting very pleasant with plenty of light
to work by, congenial company and delicious refreshments, a real treat.
