Beginners’ rag rug workshop in park setting

Learn how to make a beautiful rug from scraps of material at one of the three workshops taking place at Beacon Park this December.  

Three rag rug workshops, aimed at beginners, are being held in Beacon Park’s Discovery Hub on Sunday 1 December.

Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Communications & Tourism, said: “This is a great opportunity to find out how to use up scraps of material and weave them into a rug, just in time for Christmas.

“Places must be booked in advance, and if you are coming along to one of the workshops, please make sure you bring along some old clothes and material for the rags.”

Each session costs £5. They are suitable for anyone over 8 years of age.

The three two-hour workshops start at 10am, 12noon and 2pm.
