Commissioned to write a third book, Jenni has added more techniques for recycling textiles: Prodding and Progging, Hooking and Punching, Knitting and Knotting, Coiling, Binding, Plaiting/Braiding.
How this was made
Making is good for you. Exploring crafts can be relaxing and therapeutic - the projects in this book are accessible to anyone inspired to recycle old clothes into unique, decorative, useful projects.
What's included in the price?
A brief look at the history of textiles; advice on design, tools, equipment and materials. Plus different techniques to make rugs and other projects. Includes some memories of past rug making.
Jenni has shared traditional rag rug techniques of hooking, progging and plaiting for many years. She believes in re-using, sourcing locally and treading lightly on the planet. Whilst bringing rag rug making into the twenty-first century, Jenni honours the generations of ordinary people who used their cast-off clothing to make warm mats and loves helping people to explore their creativity through such an accessible medium at courses locally and around the country.
