Rachel Scott graduated from Royal College of Art in 1964. She painted for 20 years and took up weaving to in the late 1970s. Her rugs and tapestries are entirely handcrafted using undyed British wool.
Scott's rugs are woven from undyed natural British wool, the fleece sourced from farms in the Berkshire and the Chilterns, the various colours and textures produced by different breeds.
Designed and hand-spun by Scott, the rugs are tapestry-woven on an upright frame loom. They are the product of a slow, dextrous hand-worked process, utilising traditional tools to create designs emblematic of weaving's heritage.
