Description

Back by popular demand... and Improvers welcome!

Come learn the ancient art of Rag Rugging

At ReTweed we hate to throw anything away so this craft is just up our upcycling street. Come along to this workshop and you'll be amazed at how easy it is to create a unique masterpiece for your home with strips of fabric.

Spend a day learning with a Rag Rug guru

Margaret Kenny, is a Textiles Historian and a very passionate rag rugger. She will demonstrate the traditional techniques of hooking, progging and podging strips of fabric through hessian backing to make fabulous rugs, wall hangings, cushion covers and so on. During the workshop Margaret will also share the history and heritage of rag rugging in Britain and introduce specific techniques and patterns associated with the local area. Margaret will also work with participants to help them think about colours, patterns and encourage them to think about what kind of textiles work best for a dynamic and artistic finish.

Take home your masterpiece and a new skill

At the end of the day you will take home your own rag rug sampler or cushion cover along with a wealth of ideas for making more rag rug creations at home. Health Warning: Rag Rugging is highly addictive.

Workshop Cost: £28.50 includes light lunch
Experience Level: Beginners ( Improvers also welcome!)

This course will run on Saturday, 26th May 2018 from 10:30pm – 3:45pm. Light lunch and refreshments will be provided for all students. The course will run in our new shop premises at 26 High Street, Eyemouth (opp. Rialto.)
