    About this workshop

    Sign up to this wonderfully creative and innovative Village Haberdashery course and learn how to create beautiful and eclectic rugs, using upcycled materials.

    In this class

    This class will show you how to turn old rags into upcycled rugs that will transform the look of your house. This is a beginner workshop that aims to give you all the basic skills required to start any rag rug project for yourself at home. With plenty of help from your expert teacher, Elspeth Jackson, you will be taught how to:

    • use rag rug equipment
    • work with hessian
    • choose and prepare materials
    • design for rag rug
    • do the two different types of rag rugging (loopy and shaggy)
    • how to finish your work

    The session will provide you with the opportunity to begin a rug, cushion or smaller project (depending on how ambitious you're feeling!).

    All the rag rug materials are provided on the day and you will be given a latch hook to take home with you!

    Now you can

    • Start decorating your house in stunning and environmentally friendly rugs, made by hand
    • Experiment, using the techniques hat you have been taught during the class
    • Try out using different materials, and get others into creating rag rugs of their own- spread the passion!

    Fun fact

    Upcycling is not just a great way to reuse old clothes; it also benefits the environment in ways that we could never have known. For example, if every person in America recycled just one t-shirt, we would save 210 billion gallons of water!
