Rush matting

Flooring, Plaiting, Sewing

Usually we would go on site and make the matting to fit, but this particular client requested the matting as a rug semi fitted, made to her drawings. The cut outs are to fit around the radiator legs and pipe work, and to sit around the fireplace. We like the result. Let's hope it fits!

Some lovely letters and emails I recieved from students who came to my March workshop last month.

 

"Dear Felicity,

It was lovely to spend the weekend before last with you and everyone involved in making it such an enjoyable experience.

I learnt so much from your excellent tuition and my basket is on the windowsill for regular sightings, with the rush flowers in an old glass bottle. It was great to learn too from what everyone else was making, and to be in such good company. Thank you too for catering for us so well - a real treat! I enjoye seeing all the lovely things you make and being in such a creative environment. Thankyou so much. With best wishes to you, your mum, Ivor and your friend Lynn who helped with the catering, and a pat to Molly!

Liz" 

 

"Dear Felicity,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for a fantastic workshop. It

was great working with a new material, and I was interested to see how

the rush worked, it is a wonderful thing! Andrew and I really enjoyed

the two days, your workshop is really comfortable to work in, and the

lovely lunches with cider were amazing! Many thanks to all who catered,

it was an added bonus to be so well fed and kept going with tea, coffee,

and cake too.

It was great to meet you, and a real privilege to see your work! I

certainly won't forget it, you're a super teacher and your work is

beautiful. 

Well, I hope you had a good Easter weekend, Andrew is following you on

Instagram, and I may well join too. We haven't yet started on our floor

mat, we got home and found we had totally overestimated the space in the

bathroom, so we are now going for a hanging for the wall over the

stairs! I am now thinking that an half-oval mat would be good for the

bathroom, so I'll be trying that out and will let you know what happens.

 Many many thanks, Felicity, for such an inspiring weekend! Jane"

 

Our next workshop is in September, there are currently two places left. Please see the workshop page for more details and booking forms!

March Workshop 2016

My weekend workshop last weekend 19th and 20th was a great success. There were 8 students here from all over the country. Several people made some plaiting on the Saturday so we were able to sew it on Sunday as it had time to dry over night.

Viviana started making her beach bag from her plait. She is moving to LA and will definitely be using it on the beach.

Richard and Jane are determined to continue their plaiting at home and want to make a runner for their bathroom- brilliant work.

Several bread baskets, sets of table mats, garlic baskets and bags were finished by the students. Lots of concentration and lots of laughs throughout the weekend.

My next course in 3rd and 4th September 2016. At the moment there are 2 places left.
