Rug hooking class at Woodlawn



ELLSWORTH — Woodlawn is offering a class titled “Traditional Rug Hooking for Beginners” on Friday, July 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In this one-day introduction to traditional rug hooking, students will hook a 9-inch trivet with a coastal motif.

Veteran instructor Judith Hotchkiss will cover all the basics of materials and tools and a little bit of history besides. The goal is to provide an introduction to traditional rug hooking with wool strips, which can be compared to painting with wool.

A kit is provided with all materials needed to complete the project. Frames and hooks are available for loan during the class and to purchase after, if desired.

The cost is $125 for Woodlawn members and $135 for nonmembers and includes a pattern on linen and sufficient wool strips. As space is limited, pre-registration is required through the calendar at www.woodlawnmuseum.org.
