Basic Rug Hooking for Beginners
Join us in this introduction to rug hooking class and develop a new passion. Rug Hooking is basically a stress-free art. It is like coloring except we will be using beautiful wool instead of crayons! Tracy will introduce you to primitive rug hooking covering the equipment, supplies, and techniques. After this introduction, students will jump right in to the fun of hooking a small mat that can be used as a pillow, mat or wall hanging. At the end of this class, you will be shown everything you need to know to hook and finish an entire rug!
Tracy will discuss when and how to use equipment and supplies related to rug hooking, as she touches upon the differences between wide cut – primitive style projects and narrow or fine cut – traditional style projects. Students will then be guided through the basic techniques as they pull up their first loops on this 4 Seasons design using pre-cut #6-#8 wool strips. Students will also learn straight row hooking with the borders and flag sections. Tracy will discuss cutters and various cut sizes all of which will be helpful in your future projects.
Tracy will give insight to equipment and supplies so that you can make good choices to suit your own style and needs. Once you have completed this class you’ll be ready to take on a new project with confidence.
Everyone welcome, no prior rug hooking knowledge or experience required. This class is open to both adults and children (age 12 and older).
