Like all old-fashioned crafts, rug hooking is low-tech, simple and lots of fun! You can easily incorporate rovings, hand spun and commercial yarns, felting techniques and embellishments, once you have mastered the basics. Learn the sequence and procedure of rug hooking from start to finish. Every step will be demonstrated. We will discuss the history and tradition of primitive rug hooking, learn about finding and preparing materials, and research sources for design inspiration. You will choose from a variety of simple folk art designed rug hooking kits, for a small mat or chair pad, purchased directly from the instructor.

Fee: $41-$60
Fee includes a complete kit with tools (students choice). Materials are paid directly to the instructor.

Students should bring sharp scissors, and a snack.
