About the event
Welcome to the historic craft of rug making! Learn one of the most versatile, enduring, forgiving, and creative textile art forms. You will be following in the footsteps of your great, great ancestors; learning this uniquely North American scrap craft that was saved from extinction in the mid-20th century. Whether you would like to make enormous custom floor rugs, dynamic wall art, traditional designs or novelties…. this class will get you there.
Have you been wondering about the differences between punch needle and rug hooking? That’s why we’re covering both. You will receive both a hooking kit called ‘Zentangle Turtles’ (including a hook), a punching kit ‘Carousel Prim’ (including a punch needle), as well as all of the yarns, and a hoop.
Whether you are a complete beginner or already proficient, you will learn tips and tricks that suit your level and take you to the next level. This class is about inspiration and building confidence. By the end, you will understand how to continue and complete your projects, how to personalize your designs, how to select patterns and supplies in the future based on any budget. Prepare to amaze yourself.
