All-In-One Rug Hooking, 3 hour class

Sign up here:     https://www.littlehouserugs.com/products/all-in-one-beginning-rug-hooking-class
In this class, students will get to try their hand at hooking with a variety of materials, yarn, T-shirt strips and wool strips, all in one kit. It is perfect for beginners, but intermediate hookers can substitute the kit for a different project on my website, www.littlehouserugs.com if they prefer more of a challenge.

Materials provided: A kit, including pattern on burlap, yarn, T-shirt strips and wool fabric strips, and a rug hook (they take all home).

Minimum 3 students, maximum 25. 

Students should bring scissors, and wear long pants (as they’ll be wrapping the backing around their legs). I’ll also have frames on hand for anyone to try.
