Details

One of Britain's most experienced maker and teachers of rug-making, Heather travels widely running workshops and is internationally recognised for her skills. You can incorporate flowers, memories, animals - anything to create your unique design in colours of your choice.

You'll need some large sharp scissors and a couple of bags of material of the colour scheme you may want - though often the materials are pooled. Woollens wear best if hoping to make a floor rug.

Round frames are available for use and purchase at the end from Heather or we have a number of square frames to borrow and possibly buy at the end of the day- these will be joiner made and will cost around £15 and are 2'6" squareish and are for sale for £16 please ask Hookies and Proddiies - again - are available to borrow - and buy at the end if you want -hookies are £17.
