Rag-rugging in Reeth
Posted on behalf of Pat & Trudi E (who don't have access to the Internet)
Pat & Trudi travelled to Yorkshire for an inspirational two-day course with Heather Ritchie. Taking a photograph as a starting point, they made a fine start on a hooked/prodded rag rug. Pat has produced a very handsome cockerel, and Trudi is working on an image of Bolsover Castle for her daughter's wedding there in the autumn. Trudi thinks it may by finished in time for the tenth wedding anniversary! They found Heather an inspirational teacher, and a warm and generous personality. She is also involved in setting up a charity to help women and children in Africa through rug-making.
