Join us in this introduction to rug hooking class and develop a new passion! Learn the basics of traditional rug hooking while creating a small project. The focus of this class will be technique (...hands on hooking and lots of it!).
Students will learn about the types of rug designs, techniques, wool quantity, cuts of wool, backings, color planning, examples of as-is and dyed wools and how to use them within your design, finishing techniques, as well as tools and materials that are available.
The Project: a 7” x 7” mat using a design of choice Diane provides for students, or one students can design on their own (with instructor help).
Please note: Open Studio hours are for the floor loom weaving students.
