Hooked textiles, using all manner of different fabrics, can produce vibrant ,decorative work for abstract design and fine surfaces. Attending a workshop introduces you to creating innovative,3 dimensional form and colour definition.
Rag rugging has traditionally been a means of producing domestic rugs for the home by recycling used and precious woven fabrics. The process was done out of necessity. It also provided social interaction and hand work within the community.
In today's world there is a surfeit of discarded clothing and textiles. From this harvest we can upcycle fabrics to produce textile surfaces of colour, texture and pattern.
Once the rag rugged fabric has been produced, it can be used as you wish.
The choice is yours!
Working in this craft also connects with slowing down, creativity and relaxing. It is also a wonderful means for community work.
