Peg loom weaving and rag rug making

Peg Loom weaving and rag rug weaving  are traditional crafts that came about because of necessity, and the need to make things out of what you had to hand .

In todays world these crafts are being relearned and reinvented  as a way to create  low cost unique heirloom  items  and art works.  I provide workshops which introduce you to  creating traditional items such as decorative rugs wall hangings ,covers  as well as creating  fashionable items to wear such as hats, scarfs, bags etc.
