Margaret & I will be curating an open exhibition celebrating rag rugs this autumn at the Bailiffgate Museum in Alnwick. The exhibition runs from 9th September to 30th October and the museum is open from 10am - 4.00pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
We held a similar exhibition back in 2013, which was very successful and had 175 exhibits, including traditional floor rugs, wall hangings, cushions, bags and even a 3D miners lantern that lit up.
As this is a completely open exhibition, all entries are welcome and will be exhibited, whether you've been rag rugging for years or you're a complete beginner. Please contact us If you would like to find out more or you'd like to exhibit.
If you'd like to learn how to rag rug we'll also be running a 1 day workshop for beginners at the Museum on Saturday 1st October. The workshop costs £40 per person and this includes all materials, hot drinks AND homemade cake. If you'd like to book a workshop place please contact the Bailiffgate Museum directly:-
