Attempts to revisit the trug

I organised a group of designers to examine the craft of Sussex Trug making this year. To start with a few of us went to visit John Carnell, one of the last remaining trug makers in Sussex who still makes trugs the traditional way. My visit to John can be read about here.

Following our introduction into the craft, a few of us developed new concepts that tie in with Trugs. These images show the pretty little DIY trug designed by Anthony Dickens and the Trug Garden Barrow designed by Chris Eckersley. My designs for a wire frame to attach a standard trug to the front of your bike is coming soon.
