I have been recycling textiles into rugs and teaching rag rug making since 1986, using traditional rag rug techniques of hooking, progging and plaiting. I believe in re-using, sourcing locally and treading lightly on the planet. Whilst bringing rag rug making into the twenty-first century, I honour the generations of ordinary people who used their cast-off clothing to make rugs out of necessity. I love helping people to explore their creativity through such an accessible medium and offer courses locally and across the country. I work to commission, exhibit and sell rugs, kits, rug making tools and equipment. I am a member of the Worcestershire Guild of Designer/ Craftsmen, the Creative Breaks Association, the International Guild of Handhooking Rug Makers, TAFA, the Low-Impact Living Initiative and the Heritage Crafts Association. I give talks/demonstrations locally and have written: RAG RUG MAKING and MORE RAG RUGS & Recycled Textile Projects. http://www.jenniragrugs.com http://www.facebook/Jenni's-Rag-Rugs Herefordshire, UK
