Really enjoyed the day. Jenni explains everything very clearly and she was on hand all day to answer questions. She showed us examples of her work and was very supportive. The group was relatively small, which actually made it even nicer!
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:It's easier to help individuals with a small group. I enjoyed the day too with such interesting women who worked hard at their progging and hooking.
This course was exactly as described - a lovely location, excellent lunch and company, and an inspiring and engaging teacher, providing lots of worked examples to provide ideas of what can be done. Thoroughly enjoyed the day, and have since completed my project, and am looking forward to the next one.
Many thanks to Jenni and Lorenzo.
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:So glad you enjoyed the day Christine. Do send me a picture of your project which I could share on the students' page of my website - I look forward to seeing it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course, having wanted to try this craft for some time, but not having the confidence to start by myself. We were a small group and Jenni's relaxed, friendly demeanour made it very easy to learn the various styles of rag-rugging, giving me the confidence I needed to continue this new skill. Also the venue, The Guildhouse, Stanton, was amazing. Made the learning all the more enjoyable !
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:I enjoyed the day too. Thanks for your review Pauline and I'd be happy to put a picture of your work on my website. Keep on progging!
I attended a Rag Rug workshop course run by Jenni Stuart-Anderson 5 - 7 April held at Huntlands Farm, so the course and accommodation were at the same place - excellent.
Jenni's teaching and coaching were excellent and has given me the skills to continue with the craft with confidence.
I attended the one day course held by Jenni Stuart-Anderson at the Blue Ginger Gallery, near Malvern on 31 August.
We were shown how to work both techniques and were soon given the chance to have a go ourselves. Were able to see examples of Jenni's work which helped us decide which technique we wanted to attempt first.
The lunch provided by the Blue Ginger Gallery was a lovely home-made soup with freshly baked bread and the course itself took place in the small Summer House which provided a very friendly atmosphere.
I enjoyed the day very much and found it very useful.
Response from Jenni's Rag Rugs:I enjoyed the day too Jackie and I look forward to seeing your finished seat mat photo which I can put on the students' page of my website. Keep on progging!
Jenni's courses are such a treat and so inspirational. This course is set in the most beautiful tranquil location and the lunch is amazing. The course is very well taught and provides the perfect balance of teaching, free practice and individual tuition. Jenni is very helpful but not overbearing or bossy!
This is my second course with Jenni and I have loved both of them. Thank you
Have ever thought about a rag rug making course? Will I can highly recommend jenni's rag rug course it is fantastic. Very clear helpful instructions, with all the necessary equipment provided on the day to get you started. If you become hooked! You can purchase books, DVDs, hessian etc. Set in a great location and to top it all a wonderful lunch cooked by Lorenzo. All in all a great day with an added bonus of coming away with a new skill.
Great Course - I am now hooked and rag rugging away merrily! Jenni's
instructions very clear and tips on how to combine different colours and
weights of textiles helpful. The day flew by and we learned progging as well
as hooked rugs - inspirational !. Setting very pleasant with plenty of light
to work by, congenial company and delicious refreshments, a real treat.
I attended this course to give me ideas for my GCSE Textiles project; I came away from the course with all the knowledge of how to make the rag rugs and full of inspiration for my final piece. Jenni was amazing and very helpful. The venue was easy to find, with lots of parking and the food was delicious. Every one who attended the course was really friendly.
Lovely venue at Trumpet Corner and very friendly course run by Jenni. We were a small group and chatted away to new friends whilst learning all about progging and hooking. Lots of opportunities to ask questions as we tried out techniques using different fabrics. Came away with lots of ideas and more confidence to start a project. Jenni is a real expert and it was a privilege to learn from her experience.
