I really enjoyed this course. It was a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we learned exactly what we had set out to do. Elspeth described the two methods of rag rugging - shaggy or the flatter one and talked about other ways with the proddy. She provided cushion size hessian and hook to take away or a frame and smaller piece of hessian if you chose to do the little picture and she provided scissors and lots of cut fabrics to use on the evening. We could take any fabric we were using to keep with the design and she suggested ways of keeping the design varied . We started a project which was easy to finish and gave lots of ideas. 2.5 hours is a good length of time to get started. When I told friends they were very5 interested, as it's not a common craft to learn about.
Enjoyed learning a new skill and the cost was very reasonable.
I had such fun on this course! As someone who struggles with most 'arty' endeavours, I found Elspeth's tutorial friendly, easy to follow and very accessible. All equipment was provided and we came away with all the knowledge necessary to finish our designs and feel confident in starting our own rag rug projects. It was a very sociable, relaxed atmosphere and there were plenty of bright and beautiful examples of Elspeth's completed rag rugs on show, which was inspiring.
I would thoroughly recommend this class for anyone who wants to learn a lovely new craft and have lots of fun doing it!
Thoroughly enjoyed this class for the second time - Elspeth is an excellent tutor with oodles of patience and lots of creative and sensible suggestions. Fab location, excellent pace and length of class, all equipment provided and something tangible to show for it and confidence to complete the projects not quite finished in the time.
Would heartily recommend - next stop rag rug Christmas wreaths!
