Traditional Rug Hooking

Get hooked on this traditional fibre art that frees you to follow your imagination! Originally developed as a way to warm the floors of drafty houses, rug hooking has evolved into a contemporary art form, using new and recycled materials.

In this class, you will learn the essentials of rug hooking, including what to know about materials, equipment, methods and more. After choosing from a selection of provided designs, you will learn how to transfer yours to the backing andfinallyhow to hook it. You will never again be held back by having to buy a pattern or kit!

This workshop is open to teenagers (13 years and older) and adults who have little or no experience with rug hooking.
