Half Day Classes
In our half day workshops you will learn all the rag rug basics – how to use the rag rug equipment, how to select and prepare materials and how to do the two types of rag rugging (loopy and shaggy). You will be provided with all the materials you need on the day (including a latch hook to take home) and will start a small rag rug project during the class (traditionally a jolly rag rug flower). All our classes are friendly, informal and involve plenty of tea and biscuits. Our introductory class is a nice way to dip your toe into rag rugging and meet some like-minded people. For more details, please see our FAQ section.
Full Day Classes
Our full day workshops are designed to give you all the skills you need to be able to start any rag rug project for yourself at home. With plenty of 1-2-1 help throughout the day you will learn how to use the rag rug equipment, how to work with the hessian, how to choose and prepare materials, how to design for rag rug, how to do the two different types of rag rugging (loopy and shaggy) and how to finish your work. During the session you will get the opportunity to begin a rug, cushion or smaller project (depending on how ambitious you’re feeling). We ask that you bring a packed lunch with you but all the rag rug materials are provided on the day. You even get a latch hook to take home with you! For more details, please see our FAQ section.
We now run a series of online classes for beginners and experienced rag ruggers alike. You can tune into our online rag rug workshops from the comfort of your own home and learn something new and fun. When booking, please check what tools and materials you need to craft along in the class as we offer the option to get the tools and materials needed sent to you in advance. Aside from the rag rug tools, all you require is a computer, mobile or tablet, and enthusiasm to learn. Plus, a cup of tea on hand doesn't go amiss.
