 Rag rug workshops 

There are various descriptions for rag rugs so I thought that id start by explaining that this workshop relates to the type where small strips of fabric are hooked or pushed through a piece of hessian to make a rug

Traditionally used for rug making this technique is now used to create a wide variety of items from rugs and cushions through to hangings, bags, and even hats.

Item will be shipped in 1-3 business days
