Rag rug making in Cirencester

Rag rug making in Cirencester
Learn two traditional recycling techniques

Course Overview

Learn simple vintage techniques for making hooked or progged rugs. You could make a cushion or sampler, or start a rug. 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.
It's traditional to use old clothes/bedding. It is a creative and therapeutic activity (and it's recycling!).

“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!”
“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 ”
