Bleating in the Booking Office

One of the beautiful, eye-catching, rag-rug pictures, now in the Booking Office.

The Mermaid and the Grazing Sheep in the cabinets were made by Charmaine McKissock using an ancient Rag Rug technique. This is the ultimate recycling craft:  nearly any old material can be cut into strips and pushed or pulled through hessian to form a ‘rug’. Here this ancient craft is used as an art form to create wall hangings orjewellery etc. Contact if you want to learn more about making a rag rug.
