rAG RUG WORKSHOP

I offer a range of workshops that introduce you to  using a hand made prodder made from a dolly peg (proggy) which is the traditional ways of creating rugs in the UK as well as using a hook (hooky) started overseas and now very popular in the U.K.A lovely craft  traditionally designed to create functional items from old materials.

We now use the craft to create many different items both functional and aesthetically pleasing,
