Rug Hooking Class: Snapshots (Scenes from Your Photos or Memories)
Class is over 2 days.
What a fun way for rug hookers to spend a weekend! It is always fun to explore new creative avenues with fellow fiber fans! In snapshots you will learn to create a pictoral piece using a mix of wool noodles, yarn, silk, roving and various other fibers from start to finish. Impressionistic styling lets you imply the details while conveying the ambiance of the scene. You will learn to analyze your photo to find the bones that become the structure of your finished piece. We will build on that using directional hooking techniques developing a foreground, mid-ground, horizon line, and sky. Color planning, outlining, and perspective will be discussed. We will discuss how to finish and display the piece. Discussion on framing options will also be offered,

Bring a Buddy or One-To-One Primitive Rug Hooking Class
1-2 people, by appointment only
Teacher: LeAnn Hodgson – Camp Wool
I will help you get started (or restarted) into the world of rug hooking in a 1 to 1 format. This one time class allows us to move at a good pace and cover all the basics of rug hooking. At the end of the session you will be able to rug hook using basic skills and techniques that will allow you to finish your projects and beyond!
Note: Free follow up visits accommodated to finish your rug including instruction on how to finish your rug.
What do I get to hook and what is the cost?
You get to choose your own project! Generally I recommend something modest in size say 14”/15”’s round or square but that will be up to you. We have many to choose from! If you are restarting you are certainly welcome to bring what you have started. The cost will vary based on the project. You will pay for the pattern which is individually priced plus the wool which we will pick out together based on the colors YOU like.
Teacher fee is $60 for one person and $100 for two people (split between 2 people or $50 per person).
Hoops are $29 (subject to change) and hook prices vary greatly from $12 up to $75. Bottom line price is dependent on many variables as noted but you should budget around $175 - $200.
Note: A $60 deposit towards cost of class is required at the time we pick out your project.
How long is the class, what do I need to bring to class and how do I make an appointment?
You should budget 3-4 hours for class for 1 person and slightly longer for two. You will need to bring sharp scissors and if applicable any rug hooking equipment you may already own. I schedule this class by appointment and days of the week that I can offer do change based on staff scheduling. Call or stop by the store to schedule.
