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.
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
