Peta Shaw Jul 2022

Had a fun morning with Ness and a bunch of friendly lady's learning the basics of how to make rag rugs. Ness is a great teacher who took the time to demonstrate and help everyone individually, when needed.
We got to choose our material colours to suit our own tastes and decor from a good selection of material packs which included the tool needed to make the rug, as well as tea, coffee and some sweet treats to enjoy during the morning.
It was a great experience and definitely good value for money.
