Reverse Garbage Proddy Rug Making Class at Kimbriki

Made by prodding or poking strips of fabric through burlap or linen from the back side, proddy rugs are a fabulous way of upcycling unwanted clothes and textiles into floor rugs or wall hangings. In their early days, they were often made for more utilitarian use such as by the backdoor as their pile hides the dirt well.

Working on a small piece of hessian, you will create a design and be taught how to poke the rug through the back or through the front using a crochet hook. You can use any material for proddy, however, you will use t-shirt strips for this lesson because of their tensility and ability to grab the hessian.

What you’ll get

  • three hours of expert tuition
  • the hessian base of the rug and frame to work on that you can reuse.
  • a selection of t-shirt fabrics to choose from
  • the skills to continue on their own.

What to bring

Please bring a 3 to 4.5 crochet hook (they do have spares you can borrow) and any favourite t-shirts you want to upcycle. All other materials will be supplied.


$75 – $85 (Earlybird price of $75 applies if you book into a public session 20+ days ahead, otherwise $85 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $75 for 2+ guests; price varies across dates)


They work very hard to reach the minimum numbers for every workshop, but sometimes (not very often) they just don’t get there. When this happens, they need to cancel. To be fair to the team members and to you, they make this decision around five business days before the event. If they cancel the workshop, they will be in touch to organise a full refund.
