An introductory course into traditional North American craft of rug hooking. Dating back to pioneer times, rug hooking recycles common materials into unitarian objects for the home. This course will teach the original technique used in rug hooking and allow you to create beautiful textile art pieces that will brighten your floors and walls.
Each student will complete one 8 x 8 inch geometric hooked mat with the shapes and colors of their choosing. Students will learn about some basic design elements (emphasis on color, contrast, and texture) and learn some traditional geometric fiber art designs (hit and miss, cat’s paw, log cabin, etc.). Students will also learn the correct hooking and finishing techniques to complete their rug (blanket stitch).
Class price covers the cost of all materials, including a reusable rug hook and quilting hoop to take with you (discount if you do not need a rug hook or hoop). Additional materials students should bring: needle/thread/design sketches or photos.
Typically, students complete about 75% of their project during class time. Students will be given lessons on how to finish their mats, although it is expected that students will finish this project on their own. This class will need at least two students to run.
