Primitive Rug Hooking (Beginners Class)

Instructor: Claudia Lampley

Date: Sunday, February 4, 2024

Time:  1-4 pm

Maximum number of students: 10

Location: Boarding House, Historic Johnson Farm on Haywood Road, Hendersonville, NC

Prerequisites: none


Class Description: Have you ever wondered how folks hooked rugs before there were fancy and sometimes expensive tools? In this class we will explore the basics of rug hooking while using what almost everyone had on hand when your grandmother was living. We will learn to cut wool without a fancy cutter, use a simple frame, recycled fibers and explore different backings. “X” marks the spot in hooking this mug rug.  


Class Fee: $30 for HWFA members (must have completed orientation at the time of registration) or $40 for non-members, payable by check, cash or credit card to HWFA.

Materials fee: $10

Supplies brought by student: Students will need to bring a frame (quilting hoop or an old picture frame that we can tack the pattern to). If you have crochet or rug hooking hooks, bring them. We will experiment using different tools.  Also bring a pair of sharp fabric scissors. You are also welcome to bring your own fibers.  

Materials provided by instructor or HWFA:  Teacher will provide a pattern and recycled fibers.
