Heather Ritchie

← Back to Tutors

Heather Ritchie is one of Britain’s most experienced rugmakers and teachers of rug-making. When Heather moved into a house in North Yorkshire with cold flagstone floors, a neighbour showed her how to make a rug using hessian sacking and old lisle stockings. Heather was immediately inspired by the idea and, over the last 25 years has developed and refined rag rug making skills to the highest standard. She now travels widely running workshops, is internationally recognised for her skills and runs Rug Aid, a not for profit organisation which uses rug making as a means to provide opportunities for women and children in some of the poorest communities in Africa.
