Rag Wreath Making Workshop

Rag Wreath Making Workshop

Let every front door be adorned with a beautifully hand-crafted wreath this Christmas!

Join us for a fun-filled creative day and make not one but two bespoke wreaths, using the traditional folk craft of rag rugging.

Your day will begin with 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 collection of fabrics, you will have the opportunity to make either a circular or heart-shaped wreath (approximately 30cm). In the afternoon you will then make a second, slightly smaller wreath (approximately 20cm). Both wreaths you make can be suitably festive, or you may decide to make one for Christmas and one in more neutral colours to enjoy all year round. You may even decide to use the smaller wreath as a table decoration - the choice is very much yours!

All the materials and equipment you need to make your two wreaths 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 and is perfect for beginners. Your day with us will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm and there will be a pause for a ploughmans-style lunch partway through the day - which is also provided.

Wreaths make incredibly thoughtful Christmas, Birthday and New Home gifts so you may well decide to make others for your friends and family. 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.

Places on this workshop are limited to 8.
