Mat Making

Arts & Crafts

Alnwick Mat Making Socials

Come and have a go at the traditional craft of hooky and proggy mat making.

Like many crafts, mat making was originally born out of necessity, but today is very much about the pleasure of making and the growing interest in recycling. The tradition of mat making isn’t unique to the North East but the terms hooky and proggy are. They are also known as clippy mats, proddy, cleekie, clootie, stobby, poked, tab, broddy, bodged and peg rugs.

The Alnwick Playhouse Mat Makers are looking for new people to join their group. Could you be interested? Why not pop along and give it a try?

Date/time: 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month 10.30am-2.30pm
