Event description

Description

*THIS IS A BRING-YOUR-OWN-PATTERN CLASS*

Beth will provide all materials and embellishments, but you may also bring some of your own if they are special to you. Materials provided for you:

  • wool fabric
  • sari silk
  • roving
  • tee shirt material
  • yarns
  • beads
  • buttons
  • perl cotton
  • embroidery floss
  • applique materials
  • more

In this class we will explore a variety of alternative materials and techniques to embellish your hooked rugs where the only limit is your imagination. Techniques to be covered are (but not limited to):

  • simple wool applique
  • stuffed wool applique
  • needle felting within the rug
  • simply proddy
  • surface chain stitching
  • adding beads, gems, buttons
  • clipping loops for a shag effect
  • "checkerboard" effect with alternating loops
  • pulling loops with more than one material at a time
  • French knots - real and faux

This is a great opportunity to make an out of the box project and have some fun!

Should you need guidance on a pattern to choose, just get in touch with Beth prior to class, but almost any pattern will work. Look especially for designs that might benefit from these alternative techniques.
