Upcycled Proddy Rug Making Class
Looking for fun things to do in Sydney? Learn how to make a proddy rug with Reverse Garbage!
Made by prodding or poking strips of fabric through burlap or linen from the backside, 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, t-shirt strips will be used for this lesson because of their tensility and ability to grab the hessian.
At the end of the class, you can take home with your rug, as well as fond memories of this class.
