About

The Museum of Carpet is run by the carpet museum trust supported by the Friends of the Carpet Museum.

It is staffed by a small group of paid employees and many volunteers, all of whom will be delighted to see you when you visit.

We host a wide range of activities, events and workshops throughout the year.  Do pop in to see what’s going on!

Visit our shop for wonderful local books, souvenirs and not forgetting our rugs, woven on our power looms which all come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Behind the scenes, we hold a large collection of images and records relating to the town’s carpet industry and can assist you with copyright and reproduction requests.

If you would be interested in volunteering your time to help out with the work of the Museum of Carpet, please do contact us.
