Rag Rugs and Wallhangings - traditional hand hooking and prodding and related techniques
Using traditional rag rug techniques (and much more!) and with an emphasis upon recycled fabrics, and a painterly approach to the medium, you will be shown how to create beautiful items for the home such as pictures, cushions, rugs etc. The workshop is suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience. Using traditional tools and various techniques, participants will be taught and encouraged to create a range of experimental samples, which will inform both future projects and a small scale project started at the workshop. Both Knutsford’s characterful and historic town centre, and Tatton Park are only a short walk away from Lynne’s home and studio, which is easily reached by road and rail.
