Rug Hooking Workshop Slated

Ellsworth — Woodlawn will offer a rug hooking workshop with Al Jenkins on Sept. 15, 19, 26 and 29.

The sessions will run from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The 12-hour hands-on beginner workshop will teach participants the art of rug hooking using an 8-by-13-inch mat. Participants will learn various techniques as they hook a saltbox house with an apple tree and a short fence with sky and grass background surrounded by an irregular border.

The cost to attend the workshop is $150 for Woodlawn members and $160 for nonmembers and includes a simple frame, hook, precut wool, scissors and binder tape.

Participants are asked to supply a spool of button or carpet thread and a heavy needle to bind the mat.

Pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671. There is a Sept. 8 deadline to register to allow time to order the materials.
