LOOKING FOR A PERSONALIZED GIFT
TO GIVE FOR CHRISTMAS?
Come along to this festive class to learn traditional rug
hooking. A mug rug is the perfect
small project for all ages. You will choose from a variety
of Christmas or everyday themed mugs and design a Mug
Rug (coaster) to match. If you have more time to spare and are
feeling more adventurous try your hand at a Christmas Tree,
or Star or Angel on a spindle.
Help will be on hand every step of the way.
These Saturday classes are held at:

Learning From The MastersFine-Art Inspiration For Rug HookersRug Hooking MagazineText By Tamara Pavich
Lois Morris, resident teacher of the Beaconsfield Rug
Hooking Crafters Guild, has taught classes on portraits, monochromatics and
dyeing, and she published a comprehensive article on hooking portraits in 1979.
“I was looking for another portrait that appealed to me,” Lois said, “a face
that had some character to use as a teaching tool. I took Claude Monet’s ‘Poly’
from an art book. When my students choose to hook something fine-art inspired,
they will learn some new hooking technique they must achieve to capture the
look,” Lois said. “And they gain a new way of looking at fine art in general.
Then later, they try something original, and I hope they have expanded
their confidence in their abilities. Eventually, they will develop a style of
Poly, 13” x 14”, #3 and 4-cut wool on linen. Adapted from a
portrait by Clau…
Suggestions for gifts using the rug hooking technique:
Mini Flower Purse Louise G. de Tonnancour
This purse, measuring 6" x 6" is an original
design. All wools used were cut in #3. At a Hook-In workshop of the Green
Mountain Rug Hooking Guild in 2011, Rose Raymond from Wooley Incarnations
taught me how to assemble this purse.
Butterfly Bag by Denise Vandenbemden
The bag measures 12" x 12" - the design was hooked
in new wool in #4 cut. I got the idea for this bag from a rug hooking friend.
The bag was used as a container for gifts.
Paper Doll by Mayumi Takahashi
This 3-dimensional cushion was inspired by my small
collection of postcards featuring designs of American classic (old style) paper
dolls. The doll was hooked on monk's cloth with hand dyed new wool.
