Laurence Gatehouse



I weave my rugs using traditional techniques by hand using, in the main, natural materials. My designs involve either small repetitive patterns that are controlled by how the loom is threaded and the choice of weft colours, or larger scale designs, more suited to the eye-to-floor viewing distance. I prefer to produce functional pieces in strong colours or earth tones.
The rugs are designed and woven to be walked on but only those woven of all carpet wool would be suitable for heavier traffic areas. Should you want to purchase a rug for use as a wall hanging, I would be happy to discuss this and make permanent mountings
