Martha Birch - Hooking & Proggy Rugmaking

This one day workshop will teach you everything you could ever wish to know about the craft of rug hooking and progging. Participants will be taken through the steps required to make a finished rug. Hooking is the standard method of rug making, using prepared lengths of suitable material. Progging uses precut lengths of material, pushed through the fabric from the back, to create a more textured effect e.g. flowers that have a 3D textured form.

Bring along a black & white design to use, or create your own design on the day using Martha’s magazines for inspiration. All materials to make your rug (approx. 30cm x 30cm) are included in the $20 Materials fee. You may also choose to purchase a kit containing specialised rugmaking tools for $25.
