Traditional Rug Making, Sheldon, Derbyshire

  1. One from earlier in the year that I’ve just ordered as a postcard for a project on RFF. Nice to be back online – I’ll look at the fleet of bikes later – and happy to send any Stills regulars a postcard if you email your snail mail address.

  2. Is that RFF as in ‘Resources for the Future’? You’re positioned well to invite the viewer to feel part of this activity and to show aspects of the rug-making. But this photo is really all about the ‘cottage industry’ aspect of the craft here – the type of room, the tea-making crockery and the table top as work bench. The tonal range shows it off very well.

  3. It comes across to me as a teaching situation with the central lady talking about her craft to her younger audience. I like the concentration her pupils are showing her, she does seem to be the centre of attention. The building looks like a typical village resource centre.

  4. a light and airy picture. There is a feeling of to much window but without that height you’d miss the cupboard. It’s a great capture of a moment of concentration/teaching.
