A thoroughly enjoyable day learn a new-to-me craft.
Lorraine was a patient and knowledgeable tutor and the venue was perfect.
We learned the three main techniques and made a trivet.
The afternoon was spent getting ideas for other projects, choosing from a lovely selection of fabrics and deciding on the project, then getting started.
A great way to spend time and can highly recommend the relaxed, informative and satisfyingly fun day we had, thank you!!
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Jane, we're so pleased you had a great time :-)
Attended this course on the 13th June 2021 and it was so enjoyable.
Elspeth was an excellent teacher and was really patient.
There was a good variety of fabrics to use as well as a choice of project.
Would fully recommend this course if you are looking to try something new.
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Hayley, we're so glad you enjoyed the workshop. :-)
This was a lovely workshop learning all you need to make seven beautiful flowers. Ideal on line as able to see clearly up close on the screen, and to show your work to Elspeth as well. Felt very relaxed and great being able to do in the comfort of my home. Can’t wait to finish them off now and pop in a nice jug. Thank you.
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Zoe, I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop, be sure to send us a picture of your bouquet once it's on display. Elspeth x
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!
Response from Ragged Life: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
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.
Response from Ragged Life:Thanks Jacqui, that's great to hear. Thank you for taking the time to review the course.
Elspbeth is a knowledgable and skilful tutor. Lots of encouragement and feedback with clear instructions. As well as the chance to try the 3 core techniques, there was lot of detailed information about all aspects of tackling your own project. I really learned a lot.
Response from Ragged Life:Thanks Sarah, I'm so glad you enjoyed the class. Make sure you share your makes with us :-)
A wonderful session, I learnt a great deal and have the confidence to move into projects. Elspeth is an excellent tutor, giving excellent feedback throughout the 2 hours.
Response from Ragged Life:Thanks Jennifer, I'm so glad you feel confident to strive forward - make sure you share your makes with us :-) All the best Elspeth
Wow! 90 minutes went so fast! Every minute filled with detail so that I am now confident to be able to follow through on my idea! A rag rug which I thought I might want to do before, I now know I will do, even though it might take a long time to complete, I know I can & will finish it! Thank you so much Elsbeth, and for organising it Lizzie so I could join from the other side of the world.
Response from Ragged Life:So pleased we could make it work with the timings Sarah :-), thank you for the review.
This is a great value and well run online course. Tools and equipment all arrived well in advance. Elspeth is really friendly and an excellent teacher. She was very skilled in ensuring that we all mastered the rag rug making techniques. The 2 hours really flew by! I definitely feel confident to now start on my own rag rug projects thanks to this course. Can’t wait to get started!
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Barbara, I'm so glad you enjoyed the class and you feel confident to get going now on your own - make sure you send us pictures of any makes :-)
Really enjoyed my afternoon session. Very well organised and informative. Definitely learnt sufficient to feel equipped to try my own project.
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Becky, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Make sure you send us pictures of your projects :-)
Excellent quality tools sent as kit. Very enjoyable course with very clear instructions. I would willingly attend further courses. Highly recommended.
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Katrina, we're so pleased you enjoyed the class :-) It was a pleasure to teach you.
I so enjoyed this course, Elsbeth was brilliant and so easy to understand. If there was anything you needed to know, she was really helpful. Would definitely do another course and would thoroughly recommend your courses - thank you again :-)
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Jeanette, we look forward to seeing you on another course in the future. Make sure you share your creations with us :-) 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.
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Mandy, I'm so pleased you enjoyed the workshop - you were a perfect student :-)
Really enjoyed the online workshop! Elspeth was very clear with instruction and welcomed any questions as well as checking in and troubleshooting for each person along the way. I feel very well equiped to start my first rag rug project from this amazing workshop and feel have all the support should I need from the Ragged Life team. Highly recommend!
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Corey, it was a pleasure to teach you. Make sure you send us pictures of your first creation :-)
Fantastic socially distanced rag rugging class, very well thought out,very well presented thank you Elspeth and thank you Elspeth's Mum. X
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Angela, we're so pleased you enjoyed the workshop. Thank you for being such a willing guinea pig for our first 'al fresco' class.
I discovered Ragged Life by Elspeth when I was researching new crafts to try. Elspeth's YouTube videos and book inspired me to start rag rugging and I purchased tools and kits from her website. After trying some small projects, I'm ready to design pillows and rugs. In the online class, Elspeth shared a wealth of tips about choosing fabrics, colors, creating designs, transferring designs to hessian fabric, and so much more. She had great visuals and she emailed them to us after the class. The class was also small so we were free to ask her questions. I live in the U.S. and this is the only way I can take one of Elspeth's classes. Thank you for the online class!!
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you so much Janelle, it was a pleasure teaching you. It was great to be reaching that far afield with the workshop. Keep in touch and send us pictures your creations. Happy Rag Rugging :-) Elspeth x
I really enjoyed this workshop - it was a present from my daughter. Tools/material arrived prior to the day, emails and phone calls to check all ok. Zoom worked really well and Elspeth was brilliant explaining everything clearly. I finished my sunflower and feel very proud - planning my next project now. Thank you
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Jackie, I'm so pleased you enjoyed the workshop, we can't wait to see what you create, keep in touch.
Elspeth, very patiently, took us through the basic steps and enabled us all to feel confident that we could finish the sunflower project very easily on our own. I finished mine today and was very pleased with the outcome.
Response from Ragged Life:Thank you Janet, I'm so pleased you found the workshop useful and that you're pleased with your finished sunflower. Make sure you send us pictures of any future creations. Happy Rag Rugging, Elspeth x
I really enjoyed this course. Zoom went perfectly and I had received everything I needed to start in the post beforehand. Elspeth was confident, friendly and easy to follow. These are not courses provided just for the lock-down! It's easy to see that Elspeth has been holding in person workshops for a while. I now have the confidence to have a go on my own, and Ragged Life has online tutorials newsletters and advice if we need it. Also they sell the tools and fabrics. Give it a go!
Response from Ragged Life:Thanks Sue, it was a pleasure to teach you, I'm so glad you found the class enjoyable. Keep in touch and show us your Rag Rug creations.
