Rag Rugging
Duration:90 Minutes

Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rags. In this open ended session you’ll learn two versatile rag rug techniques that can be used to make a piece of wall art, homewares, a brooch or more. As rag rugging takes a long time to complete you may not finish your piece in the session, but will go away with tools and skills to complete it at home. 

Advisory Note:

Suitable for beginners and all ages over 12+; children under 16, must have adult supervision.
