An Introductory Rag Rug Making Session from Ragged Life!
It’s day eleven of our Big Winter Giveaway and we’re offering up the chance to learn a new skill! An introductory lesson in rag rugging for you or a friend by Ragged Life hosted in their studio in Hertfordshire.
HOW TO WIN IT: Head over to our Facebook page to enter. Share and comment on the Big Winter Giveaway Ragged Rug Post!
In this half day workshop students learn all the rag rug basics – how to use the rag rug equipment, how to select and prepare materials and how to do the two types of rag rugging (loopy and shaggy).
You will be provided with all the materials you need on the day (including a latch hook to take home) and have the option to start either a framed piece of rag rug art, cushion, letter or wreath during the class.
All the classes are friendly, informal and involve plenty of tea and biscuits. The introductory class is a nice way to dip your toe into rag rugging and meet some like-minded people.
It will take place at the Ragged Life HQ – Great Wymondley, SG4 7ER. From 10:00 – 12:30. The dates for early 2016 are:
Saturday 13th February, 2016
Sunday 20th March, 2016
Saturday 23rd April, 2016
You must be available for one of these dates to claim your prize!
