This course is an introduction to the one simple loop of traditional wool rug hooking. This utilitarian craft-turned-art form is rooted in our Canadian history and a culture of up-cycling well before it was fashionable. The project is easily adaptable and suitable for beginners and seasoned rug hookers, as well as those with minimal and maximum dexterity and sight abilities.  Once mastered, the technique of rug hooking is effortlessly and independently replicated by the participant.
