An exhibition of both traditional and contemporary rugs and mats.There’s nowt new about recycling!’.an exhibition of traditional and contemporary mats and rugs. Call them proggy or proddy, clippy or hooky mats, or indeed rugs, the art of making them (method of turning mere rags into warm and cheerful floor coverings) may have been born out of poverty and necessity but it endures as a hugely accessible folk craft and an art form in it’s own right.
There’s a mat in the frame - come and have a go! Share the memories!
Demonstrations will be held on 5 August, 23 September and 28 October.
