I have been recycling textiles and teaching rag rug making since 1987 and I love keeping alive this traditional craft across the UK. I exhibit rugs and wallworks, work to commission and have written Rag Rug Making (2003, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2014) and More Rag Rugs & Recycled Textile Projects (2011 Traplet). I used to teach Spatial Design at a London art college and now live in rural Herefordshire, embracing a low impact lifestyle.
I believe in treading lightly on the planet and source materials locally, including rare breed fleece. I believe in empowerment through creativity.
