RAGWORKS, an enterprise.


Introducing RAGWORKS©

I work with discarded textiles which I collect from local clothing manufacturers. I design a pattern, usually a nursery rhyme character, and make and cut the pattern. Then I sew the design by hand using any embroidery stitches and colours onto a larger cloth to make an individual and unique wall-hanging (4′ x 2′ secured to bamboo hangers).

As well as providing scope to practise aesthetic crafting, RAGWORKS is suitable for group work, is therapeutic, accessible to most people, a good tool to manage dementia, an art and craft form, skills-based, a recycling project , a springboard for reminiscence, good fun, anxiety-free, provides sections of work so that everyone shares and learns something.

On March 17th RAGWORKS goes to exhibition at the Stratford Picture House E15  for a couple of weeks.
