Rag rug workshops

Rag rug weaving is a traditional crafts that came about because of necessity, and the need to make things out of what people had to hand.

My workshops are great for beginners as well as those with some experience I offer in person as well as kits and kits with online tuition

I offer a range of workshops that introduce you to different ways of working. we will be using a prodder made from a dolly peg which is known by different names such as proggy and proddy and is the traditional way of creating rugs in the UK as well as using an American hook which is a bit like a crochet hook with a large handle We use an open material hessian as a base to work into and a range of materials.
