with wool strips and yarn

Classes are limited to 5 students. 

Classes are two hours with follow-up in the studio or on FaceTime.

Students will receive an 9" x 9" design for a mug rug that can also be developed into a small rug. 

The cost is $100.00 plus tax and includes a kit with yarn, wool strips, and a rug hook. Students will need a  frame or a large 14" hoop (may be purchased from the studio for $40.00 plus tax).  Students will need to bring scissors and a ruler.  

Students will learn:

  • basic techniques of rug hooking (hooking a straight line, angles, curves, circles),

  • hooking with fabric strips, yarn, or t-shirts,

  • how to cut fabric into strips without a fabric cutter,

  • basic elements of color theory that will make your rug "pop",

  • how to choose good fabric for recycling into rugs,
