The flavour of the village show came to town today in a Craft Exhibition at Morpeth Town Hall.
The event is one of the attractions of the Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering and will run throughout the cultural festival until Sunday.
One of the many displays is by the proggy mat making group Woodhorn Matters.
Members are showing the various styles of rug that it is possible to make, and visitors have the opportunity to try it for themselves.
Herald photographer Jane Coltman caught some of the coaching on camera.
