Alison reviewed: Rag Rug Full Day Workshop - Bristol

"Great course, very clear instructions given by Elspeth enabling everyone to produce a sunflower motif on a hessian bag. Personal support and encouragement given throughout. My daughter and I would have been happy to walk away with just the bag, but we were also allowed to start a cushion or rug and given material to get us going or 'hooked' on rag rugging as a hobby. Thank you"

Ragged Life responded:

" Thank you Alison, I'm so pleased you both enjoyed the class and have become hooked on rag rugging :-)"

Doreen Parkinson reviewed: Rag Rug Workshop - Full Day - York

"Thoroughly enjoyed my RagRug Workshop. I haven't done this craft before but at the end of the day had mastered the technique as had all the other ladies. Lorraine the trainer was lovely, really knowledgeable and helpful - it was a fun day and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys crafts. It makes a marvellous gift. We all came home with a hessian bag which we had decorated and made a start on a rug to complete at home. Loved it."

Ragged Life responded:

" Thank you so much Doreen for such a lovely review. We're so pleased you enjoyed the class - you were a pleasure to teach :-)"

Lena Thomas reviewed: Rag Rug Full Day Workshop - Bristol

"Attended the day course on 26th Feb 2022. Whilst i had been looking forward to the day i found that it actually exceeded my expectations.Elspeths teaching was both informative and accessible to i think.like myself new to crafting and those with good experience. The class was non threatening and the day proved both relaxing and interesting with both practical and creative base and a very concrete base in recycling and even a.nod to history and the ccreation of both practical and visually interesting pieces and being able as in the tradition of quilt making use materials that no longer serve the original purpose but also extending life memories THANKS Elspeth"

" Thank you so much Lena for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We're so pleased you enjoyed the class. Make sure you send us a picture of any creations :-) Elspeth x"

A great way to spend time and can highly recommend the relaxed, informative and satisfyingly fun day we had, thank you!!"

carol mcalea reviewed: Live Online Class - Beginner Rag Rug Techniques - Including Tools worth £30

"The time just flew by, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Elspeth gave clear instructions which were easy to follow and despite the fact that I was a beginner, thanks to her I now feel competent enough to start my first project. We were a small group, which meant it felt like individual teaching and I would recommend this workshop to anyone. The fact that it was online rather than face-to-face made no difference in quality and makes it accessible to all, regardless of their location or situation. Thank you Elspeth, and Rugged Life, for my new skill!"

Ragged Life responded:

" Thank you Carol, it's great to hear you enjoyed it and you have a new skill. Be sure to keep in touch and share your creations. Elspeth x"

Jacqui reviewed: Live Online Class - Rag Rug Bouquet Making - Including Tools worth £26

"I took part in this course online, and was really impressed with it. It was good to have the materials etc send out, so we were all working with the same fabric - it felt much more like we were all in the same place. The pace was good - we covered several techniques and I had 3 flowers ready to finish by the end of the session. Eslpeth was a very clear and patient tutor."

Ragged Life responded:

" Thanks Jacqui, that's great to hear. Thank you for taking the time to review the course. Happy Rag Rugging, Elspeth x"

"Totally recommend this course. Great dynamic on zoom. Elspeth is friendly and professional. We learnt lots together; three different techniques and time to practise and ask questions.The pack of goodies we were sent included three specialised tools and fabric samples. I started the Sunflower during the class and finished it during the following days. My technique improved and I found it very relaxing. I feel well equipped to move on to rag rug independently."
