Rag Wreath Making Workshop - Saturday 19th December 2020
This workshop is now full. Email us ([email protected]) or call us (07935208403) and we will happily add your name to a reserve list.
Let every front door be adorned with a beautifully hand-crafted wreath this Christmas!
Join us for this fun-filled creative workshop and make a bespoke wreaths, using the traditional folk craft of rag rugging.
Following a brief history of the craft, your experienced tutor will then guide you though the making process. Using a handmade tool called a 'bodger', and a fantastic array of fabrics, you will make a super fancy circular wreath approximately 25-30cm across. Your wreath can be suitably festive, or you may decide to make one in more neutral colours to enjoy all year round. The choice is very much yours!
All the materials and equipment you need to make your wreath will be provided but if you would like to use particular colours, you are welcome to bring additional materials with you. Woollen fabrics such as old jumpers and blankets are ideal. Most fabrics are suitable, just as long as they don't have a sheen that is likely to make them too slippy to work with.
This workshop is designed to be fun and relaxing. The workshop is perfect for beginners and will run from 10.00am until 12.30pm.
Should you wish to continue to use your new found skills when you get home, the 'bodger' tool used to make your wreaths will be available to purchase on the day.
