The 3D textures that can be achieved with Rag Rugging means some really fabulous foliage and colour effects are possible. So, what better medium for a festive wreath or decorative tree that can go indoors or out and look just as good next year?

Join rug maker Heather Ritchie for a lovely festive day learning core rug making skills and creating either a wreath or if you prefer it, a small Christmas tree – something that will get you in the mood for Christmas again and again….

Please note there is a £5 material charge payable on the day.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

All tools and equipment needed during the workshop will be supplied but if you have your own, please feel free to bring them.

Hessian and a range of fabrics will be available to buy for a small charge. However, you may prefer to bring your own - particularly if you have a specific colour scheme in mind. The best types of fabric for rugging are old Jersey knits and old woolly sweaters. Given the time of year, there is likely to be a high demand for green and red so if you can find any of these, bring them along!

Tools and hessian will be available to buy from the tutor at the end of the workshop if required.
