Giant Rag Rug Flower Workshop

Giant Rag Rug Flower Workshop

Come and join us for a fabulous celebration of Spring and make a giant rag rug flower.

Whilst learning the traditional rag rug making techniques of hooking and prodding you will make a large flower using recycled materials such as T-shirts, velvets, silks, tent material and plastic bags. The finished flower will be mounted  on a wire frame and backed and can be hung as a decoration or attached to a stem.

Rag rug making is a wonderful way to recycle old clothes, household textiles, yarns and even sheep fleece. The techniques are simple, the process is relaxing and thrifty however making a whole rug is a lengthy process.  From this Rag Rug Flower workshop you will take all the skills needed to make larger rugs in the future.

Workshop Tutor:
Workshop leader Sue Clow has been making rag rugs for over 20 years as part of her range of creative textile recycling. She teaches workshops at a variety of venues including museums and festivals and enjoys this down to earth art as part of a small holding life styleSee more on her website and Rag Art Studios Facebook Page
