Rag-Rugging Day Course – Postponed till November 2018.

Rag Rugging Day
Join Di on this fun, introductory day course where you will learn how to turn old clothes into beautiful, tactile rugs, cushions and wall hangings. After a brief introduction to the craft you will have a go at the two main methods of rag-rugging in our country – hooky and clippy (or proddy or proggy) and then decide if you like one or the other or want to include both in your project. The next part of the day is given over to a design session where you get to consider design needs and roughly sketch out a basic plan of your design before chalking it onto your hessian. Before lunch break we get started on cutting the fabric and filling out your chalked design. After lunch the pace is relaxed with chatting, cutting and hooking/prodding your way to your first rag-rug. Before leaving you will be shown how to finish off the edges at home and how to care for your rug.
This is the ideal no sew craft and suitable for all ages and all abilities. Please bring a packed lunch.
