In this 4-week class, you will learn the basics of rug hooking to complete the 12″ x 12″ project.  You can finish your project as a wall hanging, chair pad, or pillow, in your choice of available colors.

You will learn about the history of the craft and the different styles of rug hooking, how to design and color plan your project, and how to care for your finished product.

Materials include a hook, pattern, and various colors of wool to complete your project.
