Nessa is a great teacher and I quickly learned how to make rag rugs. It was certainly value for my money and I would recommend it to anyone.

Ness was a great teacher, very patient (even with the one left hander in the group!). The instructions were clear and the group size perfect.

Margaret Lehan  •  Mar 2021

The teacher was wonderful. Vanessa was very approachable, friendly & patient. She would check on us all individually & offer teaching & guidance as needed. The material was supplied which made it hassle free - no needing to find what you need when your day is already full I would recommend this class to anyone.

Just had my first Rag Rug class and I’m hooked already Ness was so patient and made clear, easy instructions to follow while taking time to help each participant one on one.
There were plenty of materials and colours to choose from. I’m delighted with the result and can’t wait to see my rug grow :-)
Thank you Ness
