Rag Rug masterclass

The Rag Rug masterclass took place on Saturday with Elspeth Jackson of A Ragged Life as tutor.  She bought many of her beautiful creations along with her for inspiration - I particularly liked a purple checked shaggy rag rug (see picture below)!  The workshop covered all the techniques of shaggy and loopy rag rugs, and the participants had plenty of time to make their own designs and to get to work on them, with huge quantities of recycled clothing in all different shades and fabrics available to use.   Sadly I forgot to take a picture of everyone's work at the end of the day, but I did take an 'action' picture part way through!
