About the Course

A chance to explore lots of rag rug making techniques on a 4 week course at the wonderful Cletwr Community Shop in Tred'r-ddol nr Machynlleth.

3July... hooking and prodding. Make a flower badge.

10th July... locker hooking . Make a table mat.

17th July...Standing Wool. Make a pincushion.

24th July...Finish projects including the community rag rug.

A good course for both beginners and textile artists who want to experiment with lots of different tools, materials and effects. Rag rug making is a wonderful way to recycle old clothes and household textiles, yarns and even unspun fleece. The techniques are simple and the process is relaxing and thrifty. However making a whole rug is a lengthy process so we will make a series of small finished items and from this course you will take all the skills needed to make large rugs in future.

All tools and materials will be provided and more will be for sale on the day for you to continue some creative projects at home.
