Lectures at The Higgins Bedford - Felicity Irons - Rushwork

Tuesday 2 April 2019

Meetings start promptly at 7.30pm at The Higgins Bedford, Castle Lane, Bedford MK40 3XD. Places are limited so please arrive promptly.

Tickets - Members £4, Non-Members £9

Working from a converted granary and magnificent ancient barn on a farm within a stone’s throw of the Black Cat Roundabout, Felicity Irons has, almost single-handedly revived the ancient art of making rush matting. Felicity will tell us a little about the history of the material, explain how she harvests rushes from local rivers from her punt, and show us how matting is made.
