About the Course
Celebrate summer making some beautiful rag rug flowers and learn some fantastic textile up-cycling skills.
At this workshop we will make rag rug flowers brooches, garlands and pictures using the age old techniques called hooking and prodding which are used to make traditional rag rugs.
You will learn everything you need to make larger rag rugs whilst creating some lovely finished pieces on the day. We will recycle old clothes and plastic wrappers, tents and umbrellas into colourful, fun artwork. Wonderful skills for beginners and great recycling skills for future projects too.
Rag rug making is a wonderful way to recycle old clothes, household textiles, yarns and even sheep fleece.
The techniques are simple, the process is relaxing and thrifty however making a whole rug is a lengthy process. From this Rag Rug Flower workshop you will take all the skills needed to make larger rugs in the future.
