Hooked Rugs I

Hooked Rugs I

Learn basic rug hooking, pulling colored loops or yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base, and simple ways of finishing. Rug hooking began as a scrap-bag alternative to carpets found in wealthy homes. Now it is a fine art, valued for its color and texture. Start a small project to finish at home. Although you will use a pre-printed pattern in this workshop, you will learn the skills you need to create or adapt your own. All levels welcome.

You may follow up this class with Hooked Rugs II.
