Burns Museum Rug

Timorous Beasties

Our favourite Burns’ verse  - 'To a Mouse', 'Ae fond kiss', 'Death and Doctor Hornbrook', inspired the design for a 21ftx8ft carpeted artwork now installed in the café of the Burns Museum in Alloway.  The rug was produced by the world class local craftsmanship of Turnberry Carpets, described as ‘artisanal’ (not our word!) in Ayrshire.  This is our second installation at the impressive Burns museum, this time last year we installed two engraved overslabs on the walkway leading from the museum to the Burns cottage.
