Come along to this workshop and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to create a unique masterpiece for your home.
Learn from a passionate rag rugger and Textile Historian Margaret Kenny

She will demonstrate the traditional techniques of hooking and podging strips of fabric through hessian backing to make rugs, wall hangings and seat mats.
