Ragtag Arts is a community arts centre just outside of Kendal, run by a team of enthusiastic and slightly dis-functional amazing artists! We run a range of workshops for children, teens and adults, from ceramics to weaving! Our building is home to our Scrapstore, an Aladdin's cave of crafty goodies, all diverted from landfill - it's a crafter's paradise! Open to the public four days a week.
You can also visit our crafty cafe to sample our delicious hot drinks and cakes!
Upstairs is where our artist studios are, home to 10 different artists and makers. (this area is not usually open to the public, only on our open days). Here we also have our ceramic studio, which is open to the community to use.
"A very enjoyable afternoon making a macrame wall hanging. Emily was patience personified teaching the knots and it was great fun to be given free rein to root through the shelves for interesting materials to work with. I was very pleased with the piece I ended up with and it’s now hanging on my wall at home.
