Beginner's Rag Rugging: Tote Bag

    In this rag rugging workshop by Tea & Crafting you will learn how to recycle your fabrics into new art

    Upcycling class

    2.5 hour class

    Beginners welcome

    Tea & Crafting - Covent Garden, WC2E

    What you'll learn

    Stop throwing your old t-shirts away and learn how to turn recycled fabrics into art! This class is suited to anyone and everyone, no prior experience in rag rugging (or anything to be honest!) required.

    In this class

    You will learn both the rag rugging techniques (loopy and shaggy) to turn your rags into a beautiful personalised tote bag, perfect for doing your shopping! What's not to love?

    On top if it all, there is no need to bring anything yourself. We will provide you with:

    • The tote bag (see our watermelon design below)
    • Plenty of fabric (although do feel free to bring along any of your old threads)
    • A wooden latch hook (worth, £3.99 so you're already making savings here!)
    • Tasty treats and refreshments (we are Tea & Crafting after all!)


    Although we can provide materials for the rag rugging, feel free to bring whatever you want from home. Part of the charm is upcycling those old favourites!

    We will be in touch shortly before the class to confirm directions to the venue and any special requirements you may have.

    There are no dates scheduled.

    Let's change that!

    Let the host know and you will be notified when new dates are added.
