Workshop 14: Rag Rugs with Dedri Uys

  • 2 Jun 2023
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • 220 Pitt Street, Sydney NSW
  • 16



Rag rugs.  They were "hot" in the 70's and now they are back!  Dedri has even written a book about them.  These items make excellent, useful gifts and allow you to "paint" with yarn as well as the added benefit of recycling and using up left over yarn stash.

They are great for using up various scraps of different weights, composition and colours.

In this workshop Dedri will show you how to explore creating rugs out of multiple strands of scrap yarn held together.

You will learn how to work with multiple strands and figure out the best balance between hook, texture and comfort.

You will learn how to choose which colours work best together and how to fix "bulging" or rippling as your project grows.  You will also be taught the different sturdy edging options.

Teacher: Dedri Uys
Duration: Morning session: 9:00 pm – 12:00 noon
Skill level: All levels
Inclusions: General admission ticket for 2 June 2023

Please bring the following to workshop:

  • Multiple balls of scrap yarn in any colour you want to use.  These can be shades of something you like - blue or random colours.  Yarn left over from old projects is a good choice because the odds are you liked the colours and how they played together.  Another idea is to gather up balls of yarn you can't quite part with but don't think you will ever use.  Colour change or hand dyed yarns work well too.

  • 8mm, 9mm, 10mm hooks

  • Scissors

  • Large yarn needle

  • Stitch markers

Please note: This session will be delivered in-person only - no online offering will be made available.

Sessions run concurrently on each day, so please only choose one full-day session OR no more than one each morning or afternoon sessions per day!
