About the Course
Recycle Fabric to Make a Fun Rug.
During the workshop Jenni, the tutor, will demonstrate the traditional techniques of hooking and progging strips of fabric through hessian backing to make rugs, wall hangings or seat mats.
You may start a progged project to finish at home which only requires a simple tool and can be worked on knee or table, giving a shaggy, cut pile effect. It is a good idea to try different types of fabric to see the different effects you can get - it could be woollens, cottons, synthetics.
There will be an opportunity to try hooking with a hand hook and with a speed hook, making a series of loops through hessian, stretched on a frame. More pictorial detail can be achieved with this technique.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
