Would you like to learn the heritage art of North American rug hooking in an easy going, relaxed environment?

Join us for a two session spring hooking class where our project is the Evening Sunflower chair pad/table mat.

Session One: Introduction to hooking including some history of the craft, an overview of styles, how to choose hooking wools and other materials, tools, rules, tips, and tricks, and getting started on our projects.

Session Two: We will get together a second time, on October 13th if that works for all students, to learn steaming/blocking, serging, and binding.

All materials are provided and included in the price except the hooking frames, which will be on loan to you for the duration of the course. At the end of the course you may opt to purchase any of the frames (numerous models) we have available in the shop, or ask for guidance on purchasing a frame elsewhere.

Materials included in the price of the course are: hook, pattern hand drawn on high quality serged linen, all wool and materials needed to complete the pattern, printed class materials and resources bound in a folder, rug binding materials (twill tape, corded wool, or yarn) including needle and thread, six hours of instruction, unlimited access to the instructor for questions and assistance in between classes, refreshments during class, new friends and a new craft!
