Beginners Rag Rug Making - Shaggy Seat Mats

08 June - 08 June 2019

Learn about the traditional craft of rag-rug making.

During the workshop Jenni will demonstrate the traditional techniques of hooking and podging strips of fabric through hessian backing to make rugs, wall hangings and seat mats.

At the end of the day you will take home your own unique  seat mat and a wealth of ideas for making more rag rug creations at home.

Rag rugs were traditionally made from family items of clothing so feel free to bring along an old tee shirt or cotton top to recycle and help personalise your creation or use the rags which we provide.

She is also a member of the Worcestershire Guild of Designer/Craftsmen and the Heritage Crafts Association. Her first book RAG RUG MAKING is now out of print (after 4 reprints) and her second book More Rag Rugs & Recycled Textile Projects was published in December 2011.
