The kit is a ‘Teaching and Learning’ kit that I have devised, using my experience of distance learning as an Open University Tutor, to enable an individual to be able to ‘do’ the craft of rag rugging.
The small sample in the kit ‘guides’ and ‘supports’ the learning process and ensures success. It has been developed from the interest to learn the craft from the visitors I meet when demonstrating at Clovelly.
The purchaser can start immediately and only requires a pair of scissors to cut the fabric pieces. The kit has sufficient fabric to commence, although requiring further fabric to complete the rug. It is often having to collect resources prior to starting a craft which can dampen the immediacy and enthusiasm to 'do'.
Rag rugging is a process of recycling and this is carried through into the kit, the enclosed fabric is recycled and marked out to guide how to cut out the fabric pieces. The enclosed piece of hessian is of a size that is achievable and the project can be completed.
The price is also at an affordable one thereby making it accessible to families.

Brownie or School Pack Kits
I can put together a pack for aproximately 25-30 brownies.
The kit consists of prodders, pre-cut fabric and different types of fabric, prepared hessian squares.
If you do not know how to do rag rugging there are instructions inside so that you can become confident before you teach it to your Brownies.
These have proved exceedingly popular to those I have provided for in Devon.
Depending upon the number brownies or size of class which
therefore affects the size of pack, postage and weight of the pack.
For 25 Brownies: £60 incl postage
