I make hand tufted rugs using various types of wools and silk. They are made on a frame 2 metres by 3 metres. This board showcases some of my rugs and rugs of other rug makers that I admire. www.annetteturnerrugs.com

'Fils dans l'Eau'. The idea for this collection of three rugs came from watching the lines in the choppy sea in Hong Kong harbour. Red and orange lines from brightly coloured boats moored in the harbour danced across the moving water. Hand tufted rugs by Annette Turner.

This is the frame from the other side. The tufting is done on the back of the rug. This collection of rugs is called 'I'm on the Road to Nowhere'. There are six individual rugs on the frame each 75cm by 75cm. The rugs can be positioned in relationship to each other as desired because the black lines are in the middle of each side of each square, allowing them to be arranged in a line, rectangle or large square. There are twelve rugs in this series.

This is me working in my studio in Brittany France. I work on a heavy wooden frame two meters high and three meters long which gives me a good workout climbing a step ladder for the top rows and shuffling around on my knees to complete the bottom section.The backing fabric is stretched tightly on the frame to enable the tufting.
