From rags to rugs and more…..
Jumble sale finds are turned into colourful,decorative and functional textile creations.
Demonstrations showing working methods.
Workshop bookings available.

After graduating in Education and Art/Textiles 35 years ago my creative journey has led me to explore the traditional skills of rag rug making and now love the challenge of turning jumble sale finds into decorative and functional pieces to embellish the home.I have also created unique ways of turning old jumpers into appealing cushions,quilts and throws.There is something quite delightful about turning something old and worn into something new and usable again.I enjoy passing on my knowledge and skills at workshops held at The Art Room,Barlow and also to groups who invite me as a guest tutor.
