"This course was absolutely wonderful! I cannot rate it highly enough. I was a complete beginner with Rag Rugging and came away hooked. Throughout the day Lynne took us through a variety of techniques and and inspired us to use materials that we would have never thought of! She was patient and incredibly skilled. Lynne had countless beautiful examples of rag rugs to share with us. All main materials are provided (hessian, rugging frame, prodding and hooking tools) and yours to keep after the class. I especially appreciated this as I couldn't wait to keep working at home! She also provided a superb lunch, tea and coffee - it truly felt like a craft retreat day."
"I attended Lynn's rag rug workshop on 2nd August 2019, I had been wanting to attend her workshops for some time, but the dates hadn't worked out - so glad that I went today - I highly recommend this course. Lynn's work is inspirational!, her colours, design and the wide range of projects and commissions she has been involved in are fascinating.
She is an excellent facilitator/course leader, making learning fun and at a relaxed pace.
The course includes your own good sized frame, hook and prodder (to take away) with lots of opportunities to learn techniques and test out skills and learn about fabric. The very tasty delicious lunch (homemade tomato, orange and basil soup, salads, falafel, hummus, and stuffed vine leaves) added to a wonderful experience - thank you."
"I wanted to explore all the possibilities for making textile wall hangings. Like those I've encountered at various exhibitions. Lynne's course did not disappoint. She expertly showed us how to use a wide variety of materials,including supermarket carrier bags and bath spongees in the making of some fabulous pieces of artwork.
I wanted to learn the basic techniques, but came away with so much more. I can't wait to finish my first project and I'm looking forward to returning later in the year for a more advanced course with Lynne."
"A really inspiring day.
Lynne is so creative in her art ..... and also in her home and culinary vegetarian cuisine and cakes. This is the second workshop I have attended (Rag Rugging being the 1st), and both have been as enjoyable and inspiring as each other and the atmosphere was very welcoming, and relaxing.
I have acquired technique skills and "know-how" ability from both, and look forward to combining both media to create my own artworks.
The food was truly delicious again, and it was interesting to meet new and artistic people.
I am now hooked & have spent most evening since this workshop needle felting in front of the TV. !!
As my friend Debbie said (also attending the course) "I have realised during this wonderful day, how important 'being creative' is to my general, mood & outlook on life" .... I totally agree, so thank you Lynne for an inspiring and healing day."
