Introduction to Rug Hooking
Date & Time
Saturday, April 13, 2024, 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM



Learn the basics of traditional rug hooking with a bit of a twist. Not only will we use the usual wool fabric strips and yarn (more about that in class), but we’ll also try old t-shirts, yarn, ribbon, and anything else you might have that you can pull a loop with. We will:

  • Discuss the history of rug hooking and where it is today, including its various forms
  • Learn how to prep our materials
  • Begin hooking a “mug rug,” a small table mat, or wall hanging
  • Discuss the ways we can finish the piece when the hooking is done
