Who would have thought that old rags and fabric offcuts could create such stunning rugs and homeware! Well here at Tea & Crafting we hate to throw anything away so this craft is just up our street. Try rag rugging and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create unique pieces for the home.
Have fun turning old t-shirts and forgotten favourites into recycled works of art with the age-old skill of rag rugging. In this rag rug class you will learn all the skills you need to be able to make unique rag rugging art to spice up your life. Careful though, it’s addictive!
In this workshop you will have the chance to start a personalised rag rug shopping bag (during the months of November and December we make Rag Rug Christmas Wreathes click here for that workshop) learning along the way:
What the rag rug tools are and how to use them
Selecting and Preparing Materials for rag rugging
Loopy rag rugging
Shaggy rag rugging
You will be provided with the materials necessary to complete your piece but as the charm of rag rugging is often in the memories attached to old clothes, we’d love for you to bring along any of your own clothing you’d like to incorporate, particularly if you have a specific colour scheme in mind.
Level: All levels
Duration: 2.5 hours
Includes: All you need to complete your project, including a latch hook to continue the craft at home and make many more Rag Rug projects.
