Modern Rag Rug Techniques Workshop at SCRAP
Adults only
Event organiser:
Darn It! Workshops

Rag Rugging is a technique traditionally used to turn rags into textural rags. 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.

The workshop will take place at Scrap Creative Reuse Art Project, an absolutely amazing space full of recycled materials that can be bought and used for all sorts of creativity. It's an inspiring space with a new zero waste refill station too.

Venue details:


The room is on the first floor but there is a lift. There's ample parking outside in Sunny Bank Mills with a new carpark.  Scrap is located in the Spinning Mill. We will be in the large and airy Making Room by the entrance. Light refreshments will be available as PAYF.


There will be hand sanitiser available, social distancing in place and spaces will be limited. While masks are not a legal requirement we appreciate people wearing them when you're moving around the space, and you're welcome to continue wearing yours if you feel more comfortable. If you feel unwell, have symptoms of covid or have been in contact with anyone who has please let me know so you can be moved onto a future session. If we go into another lockdown this workshop will be postponed until a safe date.

Course conditions:

The workshop needs minimum numbers to run. In the unlikely event it doesn't meet this the workshop will be cancelled. Your booking is secured by payment and if you choose to cancel you get a refund up to 2 days before the event however after that no refund can be given.
