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

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.

Happy Rag Rugging, Elspeth

Rag Rug Workshops - Trowbridge, Wiltshire

In-person course
- - #29790

Really comprehensive workshop with clear instructions throughout.
I received a beginners pack in the post with all the tools and a selection of fabrics included ahead of the booked date, an email with the instructions for how to download the app and join in the workshop and all the help necessary to make the technical side as easy as possible.
I had no idea old clothes/fabrics could be so useful or so exciting, totally inspired to get cracking.
Thank you Elspeth.

Elspeth is a very enthusiastic teacher, she obviously loves her subject. She has a lot of knowledge of the subject which she inparts in a very clear and informative way. She had lots if hints and tips to pass on based on her experiences of rag rugging. I found the whole session hugely enjoyable and finished full of enthusiasm wanting to get started on my own project as soon as possible. I felt I gained a lot of useful information which I can put to use in my own projects. Highly recommended.

Response from Ragged Life:

Hi Gillian,

Happy rag rugging,

In 2 hours I learnt a new craft, from start to finish. I feel that I have now got the skills I need to make rugs, cushions and more that will get me recycling my old clothes and creating modern art for my house.
Thank you.

Response from Ragged Life:

Thanks for much for your kind words Susanna. We can't wait to see what you make!

A really enjoyable half day course that was very well led. We were given very clear instructions as to what to do with good demonstrations. The course was very relaxed and we were able to complete or nearly complete a little project we could then take home.

Response from Ragged Life:

Thank you Debra, I'm really glad that you enjoyed the workshop.

A brilliant half day course with an excellent and friendly tutor. It is amazing how much can be learnt in only a morning when you have a pressure free and relaxed atmosphere. Elspeth has the talents of a good teacher to provide clear instructions and individual help whilst encouraging creativity. She answers all questions with humour and the sincerity of an enthusiast. Thank you for introducing me to a new hobby I hope to enjoy for years.

I’m still smiling 2 days later. This was such a friendly course. Elspeth is a great teacher. She gave attention to everyone and never left slower crafters behind. It’s lovely to come away with all the skills to get rag rugging immediately. I’ve finished a second practice piece and I’ll be starting a cushion shortly. I would highly recommend a Ragged Life course to anyone.

Response from Ragged Life:

Thanks so much for your kind words Sarah. You were an absolute pleasure to teach and I can't wait to see your final cushion :) Keep me posted. All the best, Elspeth

Elspeth was a great tutor. Very clear and well prepared. She had lots of useful tips, clear handouts and equipment that you could buy at the end of the class, so that you didn't have to wait to use your new found skills! She made it fun and we would definitely recommend this course.5

Very pleasant day spent with Elspeth, learning how to rag rug. Enormously satisfying starting our own projects and the first thing I did on returning home was to go in search of old clothes to chop up!
Would thoroughly recommend this Worksop. Yummy cakes made by Kate at MakeCreateCraft too!
