Learn traditional hand hooked rug techniques February 19, 2022 9:00 am – 4:00pm (Ages 17+)
The historic art of traditional hand hooked rugs has been admired since colonial times. Like many forms of art, hooked rugs were made out of necessity, utilizing scraps and upcycling. We will be working with hand dyed wool fabric, cut into strips and pulled through a linen backing using a rug hook. By pulling up one loop at a time, you can create a beautiful 6 and 1/4 inch by 6 and 1/4 inch heirloom textile. This is a lovely reminder that beauty can come from discarded remnants (although we’ll be using the good stuff).
$160 + $65 materials fee payable to instructor at the time of class. Ages 17+ The kit will contain Linen background, frame, pattern, hook and all of the cut wool to complete the pattern, and also binding to finish the piece.
