Rag rugging is a lovely way of using up fabrics that may have been discarded to make an attractive and useful item.
The traditional technique of rag rugging using a hook and strips of fabric is easy to learn.
We will start by making a sample using both the hookie and proggy methods. We will experiment with different weights of fabrics and a variety of materials, look at design ideas and consider ways of finishing your work.
Students will then make a small item of their choice or start something bigger to be completed at home.
What to bring: Rag rugging is a technique developed to use recycled fabrics. New fabrics do not rug well. Bring old clothing, woollens, scarves, t-shirts. Anything you can tear or cut into strips. Also any wool you may have. Sewing kit to include a sharp pair of fabric scissors. Any kind of embroidery hoop. Marker pen.
The tutor will bring the tools you will need and some hessian if you need it.
