Have you been wondering if rug hooking is the craft for you? Do you want to learn how it’s done and what it’s all about? This four week class is a quick introduction to rug hooking and will answer all your questions. You will create a small hooked piece with a simple and easy pattern while learning how to pull loops of wool through a woven backing.

The cost of materials for the wool and pattern is $35. Frames and hooks will be available to borrow for the duration of the course to be returned on the last night.

Joan MacKenzie is a fibre artist educated at York University and Ryerson in Toronto. She has been rug hooking for over 20 years with her work showing in group exhibits across Nova Scotia.
