About Proddy

By Louise G. de Tonnancour _

This very old technique is still well used by ruggers in England especially the Yorkshire where Heather Richie  lives.

Step 1: You will need a plyer (a: to pull) or a sharp (b: to push).

Step 2:  Cut the strips.

Step 3:  On the right side of the rug consists in pulling, with a plyer, short strips of fabrics (about 6 cm long x 1.5 cm wide) through the canvas.

Step 4: On the back side of the rug, the technique consists in pushing, with a sharp tool, the short strips of fabric through the canvas.

The canvas must be stretched on the frame. You can roll the strips to obtain curly and volumetric effects.
