Proddy Rug Making Class - NSW Seniors Festival

Upcycle old clothes and textiles to make a new rug or wall hanging



3 hours Class size 1 to 10     label Free

Join us in Marrickville and learn how to upcycle your own clothes and textiles to create something entirely new! Made by prodding or poking strips of fabric through burlap or linen from the backside, proddy rugs are a fabulous way to reuse discarded materials and transform them into floor rugs or wall hangings.

This class is free, thanks to co-funding by a NSW Seniors Festival Grant provided by the Department of Communities and Justice.

Working on a small piece of hessian, you will create a design and be taught how to poke the rug through the back or through the front using a crochet hook. You can use any material for proddy, however, we will use t-shirt strips for this class because of their tensility and ability to grab the hessian.

Please note you must be over age 60 to attend. If you are not a senior, please look at the other proddy rug workshops we have available.

At the end of the workshop, you are welcome to join a tour of the Reverse Garbage warehouse.

Please note:
We work very hard to reach our minimum numbers for every workshop, but sometimes (not very often) we just don't get there. When this happens, we need to cancel. To be fair to our team members and to you, we make this decision around five business days before the event.


Knowledge required
Beginner-friendly.
 
What you'll get
  • Three hours of expert tuition.
  • The hessian base of the rug and frame to work on that you can reuse.
  • A selection of t-shirt fabrics to choose from.
  • The skills to continue on their own.
What to bring
Please bring a three to four and a half millimetre crochet hook (we do have spares you can borrow) and any special materials you want to upcycle. All other materials will be supplied.
