Fancy trying a bit of up-cycling and learning the heritage craft of Rag Hooking*? This is a lovely craft to learn and uses all those old worn out unwanted t-shirts, sheets, shirts etc that you may have stored away ready to be disposed of. We will be cutting these up into strips and learning the technique of hooking into a hessian base.

Don’t worry if you have no unwanted t-shirts etc, as there will be plenty to choose from on the day. If you are however able, please feel free to take a couple with you to cut up into strips, ready to be hooked.

All tools, tuition and refreshments will be supplied on the day.

*Rag Hooking, Rug Hooking, Clippy Rugging, Rag Rugs or here in the North East of Scotland ‘Clootie Basses’ i.e. the making of something out of old rags. whether that be a rug, cushion, pot stand or just a decorative piece to hang on the wall. Rag Hooking has been around for a very long time and is an easy skill to learn.

Tuition, snack and tea/coffee are included in the price.
