Learn traditional hand hooked rug techniques – you will learn everything you’ll need to know to finish the pattern at home. January 21, 2023 10:00 am – 3:00pm (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.

By pulling up loops of cut fabric, one at a time, you can create three beautiful 5 and ¼ inch circular
ornaments/coasters. You will learn everything you’ll need to know to finish the ornaments at home. The kit will contain a pattern drawn on linen, a hooking frame, a hook, cut hand dyed wool, banana silk yarn, and backing to finish off your ornament. The cost for the kit is $50.00
