Here's what our students have to say

Such a lovely way to spend a day. Great tuition and company from my fellow students, lovely refreshments & fun projects to choose from. I am firmly hooked on rag rugging. If you do this course I can guarantee you will never look at a piece of clothing in the same way! Thank you.

Gilly – February 2022 - British Rag Rugging - Full Day Class

I’ve done 2 online workshops via zoom now and they have been brilliant, Elspeth has a great way of explaining the skills and you learn so much in a really relaxed and interesting class. Online orders arrive quickly and always in lovely packaging just showing their high level of care, attention and passion for rag rugging 🙂

"A great course and easy to pick up as a beginner crafter. A lovely surrounding and ample tea and biscuits. Produced a lovely small piece and have got the bug so will continue making some more in the future."

Recently did my second workshop, and again, thoroughly enjoyed it, Elspeth is a great teacher and her enthusiasm and talent is very inspiring. Highly recommend the courses at Ragged Life.
