Rag Rug Full Day Workshop - Crafty Sew & So, Leicester



Have fun turning old t-shirts and forgotten favourites into recycled works of art with the age-old skill of rag rugging. In our full day and half day classes 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 are run at Crafty Sew & So, you will have the chance to start a sunflower shopping bag or trivet when learning the techniques and then choose another project in the afternoon e.g. a rag rug cushion, rag rug wreath, bouquet or rug. 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. This class is suitable for all levels but do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. The cost of the full day workshop is £80

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 if you're doing a full day workshop. You'll be provided with tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the class.
