Introduction to rag rugs  workshop 

If you have ever fancied having a go at learning how to make a rag rug or want to get started again then this is the ideal workshop for you.
Together we will create a small piece of work to get you started which will enable you to create a piece that can be turned into a cushion/ a bag/ wall hanging or anything you choose. You are most welcome to start on a larger project if you wish to work on it on your own.

This  online workshop is suitable for  adults and teenagers at  all levels of experience  (please note that you will need to have good hand dexterity and strength as there is a lot of twisting and pulling and scissor movements)
