Students will learn rug hooking with wool fabric strips on a linen backing to create a beautiful landscape design.

Topics covered will include: hooking straight and curved lines; using hard and soft edges; and understanding atmospheric perspective. At the end of the day, students will leave with a hooked 4-by-6-inch landscape ready to be framed, a new love for this traditional artform, and the skills to continue rug hooking at home.
