Workshops at The Rug Studio 2019

    • Try Traditional Rag Rug making (Hooky and Proddy) to make a rug, wall hanging or cushion. Patterns are available or design your own. Use recycled or new material to create your rug. There are plenty of workshops to attend through 2019 from beginners to experienced rug makers and for anyone wanting to brush up on skills. The workshops include Hooking, Proddy, Punch Hooking, Specialised classes in Design, Appliqué with Hooky and Proddy, Hints tips and techniques.
    • My studio is a bright light and cheerful place to work. The classes are usually limited to about 7 or 8 students.
    • If you would like to come for a workshop and the listed dates are not suitable please email or telephone to arrange a suitable date.
  •  Once your class/es have been paid an information sheet and receipt will be sent.                  If you have any questions on any of the workshop please email
