Folk Art Rug
 Janet Conner

Like all old fashioned crafts, rug hooking is low-tech, simple and lots of fun! You can easily incorporate rovings, hand-spun and commercial yarns, felting techniques and embellishments, once you have mastered the basics. Learn the sequence and procedure of rug hooking, from start to finish. Every step will be demonstrated. We will discuss the history and tradition of primitive rug hooking, learn about finding and preparing materials, and research sources for design inspiration. You will choose from a variety of simple folk art designed rug hooking kits, for a small mat or chair pad, purchased directly from the instructor. Your rug hooking kit will include everything needed: hook, instructions, design suggestions, binding, burlap, hoop and a selection of one-of-a-kind heirloom and hand-dyed wools ($41.00 - $60.00, depending on size). 

If you have a favorite pair of sharp fabric scissors, please bring these to class. Bring dinner with you.

Meets: Wednesday November 13 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm Room A158 Tuition: $50.00
