Learn simple traditional techniques for making hooked or progged rugs. You could make a cushion or start a rug. If you would like to customise a hessian bag it makes a useful sampler and they make unique gifts. Hooking is used for pictorial detail - a thin strip of fabric, or yarn is hooked in loops through hessian backing. Progging gives a shaggy surface when small rectangles of fabric are pulled through backing.

£85 includes a piece of hessian and a £5 voucher to spend in the onsite cafe

“Just a quick email to say how much Val and I enjoyed our day with you, we both feel quite inspired to have a go and Val is already planning to cut up Trev's trousers and jacket!”Annabelle
“Great Course - I am now hooked and rag rugging away merrily! Jenni's instructions very clear and tips on how to combine different colours and weights of textiles helpful. The day flew by and we learned progging as well as hooked rugs - inspirational !. Setting very pleasant with plenty of light to work by, congenial company and delicious refreshments, a real treat. Yours raggily ”Vanessa
