Come along to cheeky sew and sew and learn to make a unique handcrafted rag rug from fabric scraps. Rag-rug making course: Learn the basics of prodding a rag rug and use recycled fabrics to make a rag rug. Learn how to prepare your canvas and materials and transfer a pattern to your hessian. Several techniques can be taught on the day concentrating on prodding or progging techniques and a section of rug completed. Includes materials for use on the day plus fabric, prodders/hooks and worksheets etc can be bought on the day to use at home. Encourages the use of recycled materials to make long lasting, eye catching and hard wearing rugs. We’ve no end of funky fabric to be used up, so have a rummage through our scraps box too.
Lunch isn’t included but there are plenty of places to eat or bring a packed lunch and eat with us!

The course runs 10am -4pm and costs £40 including materials.

Class sizes are reasonable small and there’s 2 tutors so there’s plenty of individual time. The tutors are Amy and Mick from Oakworth Textiles near Howarth and we’re pleased to have them back running another course with us.
