This video was presented during the inaugural virtual Hook-in 2019
Created and produced by the Global Textile Hub team in Australia, Kira Mead, Jo Franco and Judi Tompkins,
connected like-minded craftspeople and artists around the world,
from a gas-lit cottage by a windswept tarn on the edge of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria north of England
to Rug Hooking Week at Sauder Village, Ohio, USA and beyond.
Rag rugs … fabric time-machines linking ancient craft contemporary art and futristic technology.
Are you wondering about my last post showing some of the coils made at a workshop on May 29th, and just how they relate to rag or hooked rugs?
It is a technique used by Judith Stephens in the creation of many of her hooked wall hangings as you can see below.
Judith facilitated a workshop to make the small silk coils at an International Conference of Rugmakers in South Australia in Oct 2012.
