Hooking thin strips of fabric or yarn through backing material is a vintage rag rug technique beautifully suited to pictorial or detailed designs. Traditionally, in Canada and America it often depicted scenes from early settlers’ lives and has developed there into a highly prized folk art form. In this session you can hook yarn and strips of recycled fabric to make a sample, trying different hooks and materials on hessian backing on a small frame. At home, you could hook larger projects like rugs and wall art. It’s relaxing, creative, accessible (and can be addictive). Suitable for beginners and children when accompanied by an adult.
