Rag Rugging – Beginners and Improvers – 2 September 2023
10.00 am – 12.00 noon
£25 8 – 16 year olds – £15
with Sarah Ryan of Little Trees Outdoor Learning & Conscious Crafts
Join us for a cosy and relaxed morning in the roundhouse for this beginners/improvers workshop and start your own rag rug project. We will begin with a brief history of this sustainable craft and practice both the ‘clippy’ and ‘hooky’ methods of rag rugging together, before planning out your project piece. Fuelled by homemade cake and good company we will begin to create something useful, practical and beautiful.
You could choose to make a traditional rug, cushion cover or artwork, or if you have attended previously, bring your current rag rug projects along to continue with likeminded folks.
Hessian, fabrics, tools will be provided but please bring your own (sharp) scissors. You may also want to bring your own bag of fabric scraps (no denim, knits, sheets or silk). This is a no-sew craft and suitable for complete beginners.
There will be hot drinks and refreshments to enjoy throughout the morning.
Please note; those with respiratory issues may wish to consider whether the hessian fibres might aggravate their condition.
Please note 8 to 16 year olds are welcome with an accompanying adult.
