Get eco-creative and learn how to turn used fabrics into a rug or wallhanging masterpiece.

About this event

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create a contemporary rag rug masterpiece, using traditional rag rugging techniques.

No prior experience necessary, all abilities welcome.

Materials and equipment will be provided, along with pre-loved clothing (just in case you don't bring your own–see below).

Fee includes a latch hook rug making tool, so you can continue this environmentally-friendly and therapeutic craft at home.

Rug Canvas can be purchased during the session, if you want to make a large scale rug at home.

Similar to the paint and sip concept, all my evening classes for adults are BYO drinks welcome.

There is, of course, no obligation to drink alcohol. There’s a late opening Dome Cafe next to the venue, if you’d rather bring a coffee. Hot and cold water are available on request at the venue and I have a selection of teas available.

What to Bring

Please bring three to four items of unwanted clothing–most fabrics will work. You’ll re-use these fabrics, learning how to turn them into a rug/wall hanging.

If you don’t have any, you can source them free or at a low cost, from friends, family, a local thrift shop, or put a call out on your local Buy Nothing Facebook group.

If you have plenty to choose from, choose the colours you love or colours that work well together, for example:

  • whites, yellows, greens, blues
  • whites, yellows, oranges, reds
  • whites, pinks, purples
  • mixed pastels
  • mixed brights
  • whites, greys, blacks
  • complimentary colours contrast well–these are opposites on the colour wheel, like orange and blue, or red and green.
