Rag Rug Kit Giveaway With Ragged Life

Last week Craft Candy’s very own Zoe tried her hand at rag rug making in London with Ragged Life, the brainchild of Elspeth, who has been sharing her passion for making new from old using rags for the past two years. Rag rug making in particular is making a huge comeback, with more and more people seeking to learn to make sustainable items from recycled materials.

I once went to a young embroiderers class when I was about 13 and loved it. It got me inspired to have a go at all things crafty and I would love the chance to learn something new.

I went to an evening Flower School at Swallows and Damsons florists in Sheffield last year and it was truly amazing. The owner has real flair and artistic vision and enabled us all to go home with stunning bouquets.

Christmas Crafts with the WEA in Sheffield - wreaths, cards, centre pieces, garlands, etc, etc. Most of the materials were provided too - great for getting into the Christmas spirit.

A pottery class in France. The language barrier didn’t help, and I ended up covered head to toe in clay… But was great fun and I still use my wobbly wonky bowl today smile

The best creative class that I’ve undertaken was a lino block printing course at Tea and Crafting in London. I was amazing how accessible and cathartic it was and it gave me the confidence to sign up for screen printing course in January with my boyfriend!

The best class I’ve ever been on was a finishing techniques class for knitting. Never had my knitting things looked so beautiful! Learnt great new cast ons and offs and when to use them. Now the only problem I have is finishing all the things that I start!

I have had a sewing machine for ages but not really used it. I went on a sewing class recently and what was great was that it inspired me to go home and make matching night dresses for me and my daughter. She really loved it. Other classes I’ve tried have not been as successful…

I did a quilting crash course a few years ago that was brilliant. I’d be focussing on the little section I was working on and then suddenly I had myself a quilt! One of those keep forever type things…
