Event description

Description

Rug hooking is an artistic craft that has existed since the time of the Vikings. Loops of yarn or fabric are pulled through a stiff woven base to create a design-resulting in a beautiful rug or wall hanging. In this class, Judy will introduce you to three techniques for rug hooking: hooking with yarn, T-shirt strips and wool fabric strips. You will be inducted into the mysteries of transferring designs to the backing, determining which backing to use, deciding whether or not to use a frame and how to clean and care for you hand-hooked creation. This class is a great introduction to an ancient craft.

Experience Level: No previous experience required

Materials Needed: Bring Scissors and Wear Long Pants

Materials Fee: $30 includes complete rug hooking kit and hook
