Come spend a couple hours with veteran crafter and instructor Sally Peart to learn the basic techniques of primitive rug hooking.
Rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as burlap, linen, or rug warp. The loops are pulled through the backing material by using a crochet-type hook mounted in a handle (usually wood) for leverage. Rug-hooking has been popular in North America for at least the past 200 years.
In this class we will be learning how to: draw a simple pattern onto burlap, how to do primitive hooking, and finish off your mug rug.
