Rug Hooking Level 2 – Using Alternative Fibres for Accent and Effect

10am to 4pm on November 24 at Legacy Studio

You know the basics of rug hooking – now let’s add some flair!

In this class, we will explore ways to add excitement to your traditional hooked rug by adding alternative fibres and varied cuts as accent. By adding unspun wool roving, recycled sari silk ribbon, variegated yarns and more, your rug hooking pattern will come to life.  We will discuss where and when it’s appropriate to add alternative materials as well as how to hook them. There will be emphasis given to hooking with natural fibres but if you bring it along, we can try it.  It’s great fun to experiment!

This class is open to advanced beginners and up.  You must already know how to hook.  Due to time constraints, there will be minimal guidance given as to colour planning.

Participants should bring their own hooking equipment and materials (hook, frame, pattern, wool etc.).   Pictorial, landscape, animal and folk art patterns work well for adding alternative materials.  You may also choose from the patterns and wide range of wool and alternative fibres available for purchase from Legacy Studio. There will be a cutter available for your use during class.
