Under Your Feet: The Contemporary Rug is a celebration of rugs designed in the British Isles. 19 of the best rug makers today are represented in this exhibition. Their rugs will be spread out in a colourful, textured and timely reminder that underfoot, or on a wall, rugs remain as vibrant and relevant as any other craft medium.

A rug is a large presence within a room. It brings texture, colour, design and wit to an interior, where it will focus the eye and comfort the feet.
