Some of our lovely #volunteers have been very busy creating this rag rug over the last year and they are now finished! Well done Jim, Jackie and Myra. It looks great. Rag rugs were popular because they were cheap to make: all you need is some hessian and lots of scrap material (and time and patience of course!). The process is simple enough as you push the material through the hessian using wooden pegs and because the material is tightly packed together it will stay in place. We have one in the kitchen of the Burns Cottage already (also made by volunteers) so this is a nice addition to that one. ๐Ÿ˜Š . . . #volunteering #heritagevolunteers #volunteerappreciation #burnscottage #rbbm #robertburnsbirthplacemuseum #nts #nationaltrustforscotland #fortheloveofscotland #ragrug #18thcentury #historichouse #alloway #southayrshire #scotland #scottishhistory #scottishheritage #traditions #traditionalcraft #domesticchores #womenswork #socialhistory #colourful #pretty #recycling #nowaste
