Introduction - Beginner
The Technique of Rug Hooking
One Saturday Afternoon 1-4 pm
The class concentrates on technique. It is so important to learn proper loop formation, the foundation of all your projects to come. Simple tips can make the difference between higgly piggly loops and straight, uniform ones. Holding your hook properly dictates the neatness of your work as well as saving your wrist from repetitive stress.
In this class we concentrate on loop height and position. We practice straight and curvy lines and circles. Once you master these simple techniques you are off to the races.
During the class you can use our equipment such as scissors, hoops, frames and hooks. You will need a project and there is a large selection of kits to choose from or you can select a pattern from our racks before the class and we can choose enough wool to get you started.
After I demonstrate the techniques there will be a practice period and once you are comfortable then you will begin hooking directly on your project. I hover over you for the next few hours to make sure you stay on track. While you work, I talk to you about all aspects of rug hooking and recount funny, rug hooking related stories.
Let's get you started! Bring a sense of humour because we love to laugh! Coffee and Tea will be served.
You will receive a handout to take away.
NOTE: There is no class fee if using one of our kits or pattern and wool. You need to begin with the very best quality materials so the experience is positive. Working with recycled wool or new, inferior wool is frustrating for you as well as me! Fee for instruction is $30.00 if you are using a product not from our studio.
Release your inner hooker!
