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.
Rag Rug Courses
We run a few rag rug courses in various locations across the year. These can vary in length from simple Rag Rug Weekend Courses to ones which run over a number of weeks. Courses give you the time to really hone your rag rugging techniques and are perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in the craft whilst meeting like-minded people. There is a lot more flexibility in terms of what projects you can embark on within our rag rug courses so if you have a specific project in mind then a course is probably for you.
