Maker's bio

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.

Gill Bullock reviewed: Rag rug/rag wreath making day in North Herefordshire

"Having been aware of rag rugs for many years - starting with sight of one in a museum many years ago, I hadn't realised that they are relatively straightforward. Jenny made us all feel very welcome and set a tone of sharing, support and just the right amount of guidance. Tips and historical notes were presented during the day. My own seat cover design evolved organically and I motored away to complete it in the time. Progging was addictive! "

Jenni's Rag Rugs responded:

" Thanks for your review Gill and the photos you sent of your beautiful seat mat using Japanese materials. I do enjoy the way projects evolve organically depending on the materials which are available. "

"A great introduction to the craft of rag-rug making. It was fascinating to see all the types of rugs that Jenni had made. I would highly recommend this day course and Jenni’s approach to teaching the skills. It’s hands-on from the start and very addictive!"

Jenni's Rag Rugs responded:
