Rug Hooking Basics

Saturday, January 19, from 10am to 4pm.

Rug Hooking is a traditional fibre art using new and recycled wool fabric, cut into strips and hooked through a backing to create beautiful rugs and wall hangings. In this class you will learn the basics of rug hooking, from the basic materials and equipment you need and beyond!  After choosing from several designs, you will learn how to transfer the design to the backing and how to hook it.  You will never be held back by having to buy a pattern or kit – unless you want to.  In Rug Hooking, you are free to follow your imagination and create as you enjoy.  You will surely be hooked!

Cost: $75 per person – 6 participants maximum and minimum.  Class held at Legacy Studio.

Cost includes:  Six hours of instruction, burlap backing for a 9” square pattern, choice of design, and printed information booklet.  All other materials may be purchased on site at Legacy Studio ($30 - $40 approx.)

Participants will need a 14” quilting hoop or rug hooking frame – (may be purchased from Legacy Studio), a rug hook, felted wool fabric and a small pair of scissors.

All other equipment will be provided.
