Rag Rugging – Full Day Class

Perfect for dipping your toe into rag rugging.  Learn the traditional shaggy, short shaggy and loopy techniques of rag rugging into hessian.  Includes all materials & refreshments.

Our full day workshop is designed to give you all the skills you need to be able to start any rag rug project for yourself at home. With plenty of 1-2-1 help throughout the day you will learn how to use the rag rug equipment, how to work with the hessian, how to choose and prepare materials, how to design for rag rug, how to do the two different types of rag rugging (loopy and shaggy) and how to finish your work. During the session you will get the opportunity to begin a rug, cushion or smaller project (depending on how ambitious you’re feeling). We ask that you bring a packed lunch with you but all the rag rug materials are provided on the day. You even get a latch hook to take home with you!

About Ragged Life

“Ragged life” was founded in 2014 after noticing that more and more people were looking to get into rag rugging. Founder and owner Elspeth started out running workshops at weekends and in the evenings in London and Hertfordshire but as demand picked up she decided to leave her old job to enter the world of rag rugging full time. Fast forward a few years ! Elspeth is now a published author, has appeared on national TV and is a regular in craft magazines.

Elspeth loves spreading rag rug cheer by running workshops across the country as well as selling rag rug starter kits and making handmade commissions.
