This one day course will teach you the basics of rag rug making. Have lots of fun making old clothes and forgotten textiles into recycled works of art.
During the day you will learn all about the best tools to use and how to work with the baking hessian. You'll learn how to select and prepare the best materials and the different techniques for working the rags, looping and shaggy. You will work to complete the front for a cushion cover or tea cosy.
Please bring with you a range of materials you would like to use in your piece. Stretch fabrics are the easiest to work with so raid the charity shops or de clutter your wardrobe and bring along those unloved t shirts, leggings and sweatshirts. Rag rug making takes up an awful lot of material so bring plenty! Ultimately you can rag rug with anything so be was adventurous as you like.
Support materials and backing material will be provided by the tutor.
