After the initial launch of Made in London, my distribution for the series hit a snag as Confessions of a Design Geek sadly had to close down leaving me at a loose end moving forward.
This month’s video is about rug-maker Rachel Scott, who has been hand-weaving rugs since 1976 when the carpet on her stairs wore out and needed replacing. “I was trying to think of a way to make a braided rug that would go upstairs,” she explains. “I met a friend in the street, and she said, ‘Welsh wool is the thing’. I hadn’t thought of spinning wool until then. I just started with an old bedstead, which I wound my warp around.”
Now the series is back on track there will be a new episode on the last Wednesday of every month for the foreseeable future.
