Beginner Rug Hooking

  • Sky Office #1602, 10350 122St Edmonton, Alberta Canada (map)

The hardest thing about rug hooking is finding the supplies! Seriously, these tools are delightfully mesmerizing and hard to come by.  You probably won't find a single rug hooking book at chapters, and you certainly can't get a hook from the "mother-store" Michaels. You gotta hit up a specialist for these hard to find items. Once you have the necessary tools, rug hooking is very fluid and free, a relaxing creative outlet! 

INSTRUCTOR : Fern

PROJECT: Students will hook a small placemat or circular wall hanging in an 8" embroidery hoop.  A simplified version of the pictured pattern will be available.  There are 4 other patterns to choose from, you can bring in your own (we'll trace it onto the backing) or create as you go if you're free spirited.  All materials are provided, hooks can be purchased if you wish to take one home.

DISCUSSION: Wool cutting, hooking techniques, stencilling patterns onto backing and finishing techniques.  Tips on how to identify wool in second hand stores and a list of suppliers

PREREQUISITE: None!  Rug hooking is super easy and no experience is necessary

NOTE: Class size limited to 6 people.  All materials provided, Lady Craft portrait included. Cancellations must be made 72 HOURS BEFORE class date for full refund. Class subject to cancellation if minimum registration of 5 people is not met. Class end time may vary by 15 minutes.
