The use of recycled clothing to make rag rugs has been with us since at least the 19th century. Today this old craft is as relevant as ever, giving us the opportunity to design and create original, beautiful and useful items at minimal cost.
“Making rag rugs is not only fun and rewarding, it’s environmentally friendly too!”
My name is Jane Wood and I began making rag rugs about 20 years ago. I run workshops in hooked and proddy rag rug making – see the “Workshops” page for more details and am available to give talks and demonstrations to local groups in the Burton upon Trent area.
Commissions for rugs and wall hangings are my speciality and I’m happy to discuss design ideas and provide costings without obligation.
I have exhibited my rugs in local galleries and exhibition spaces and sell my work through at craft fairs and via my online shop at http://www.folksy.com/shops/rozzynanty. See my Facebook page, Tiddleyworks for extra news about my rug work, knit and crochet items and ropework.
