Modern Rag Rugging Techniques with Kim

Modern Rag Rugging Techniques with Kim

​​Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rags. It has a rich history of varying techniques region to region, with a common thread of upcycling scraps into tactile homewares. In this open ended session you'll learn two versatile rag rug techniques that can be used to make a piece of wall art, homewares, a brooch or more. As rag rugging takes a long time to complete you may not finish your piece in the session (but if you opt to do a brooch you will do) but will go away with tools and skills to complete it. There will be a wide range of fabric scraps, recycled materials, colourful rope, buttons and other things to choose from to make your piece unique. If you have any questions message
