Basic Rug Hooking for Beginners
Join us in this introductory Rug Hooking Class. Rug Hooking is like coloring except we are using
wool fabric instead of crayons! Tracy will cover the history as well the equipment used to create a piece of Folk Art. You will be learning the techniques to finish this project and future rugs. We will also touch on the differences between wide cut (primitive style) and fine cut (realistic style). Students will be guided through the basic techniques as they pull their first loops on a 9″ x 13″ design. If this is not your first Rug Hooking class, please let Tracy know. If you would like to try a new technique, she can help you adapt the pattern so you can add a Prodded flower or a Waldoboro flower. Note: Materials/Supply kit – Includes everything to finish your project. (Colors will vary due to the use of recycled and hand dyed wool.) 9″ x 13″ hand drawn pattern, pre-cut wool strips, hook, wood frame, instructions, binding tape, notebook and pen. Beginner & Intermediate. 2 patterns to choose from.
