About the Class
Open to ages 10 and up.
Learn the art of traditional rug hooking over this six week course. Classes are held every Saturday, from July19th through August 2nd, 9am-noon, at the Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore.
Beginners will learn basic traditional rug hooking techniques and tips while making a “mug” rug with instructor Elissa Crouch. Students will choose their own colors and work at their own pace to complete up to four 4in. x 4in. rugs. Then move on to your own creation based on a design from the teacher or from your own imagination.
More experienced rug hookers are welcome to join the class and bring their own designs or commercial patterns to work on while having the opportunity to ask questions and perfect their techniques.
Class size is limited to 12 so sign up today to reserve your space! The cost for the six week course is $100.00, which includes the following materials: backing and wool (hand-dyed by Elissa) to complete the project. Hooks and hoops will be available for use during the 6 week course. Students need only bring a pair of scissors and their imagination!
Class Fee $100
Elissa Crouch is a certified McGown teacher (25 years) and a member in good standing of the McGown Guild. She comes from a long line of artistic women, in one form or another, from oil painting, to basket making and more. Her main interest began about 29 years ago when a dear friend introduced her to traditional rug hooking. Due to a full time job and the lack of available instructors, Elissa taught herself. Eventually she took classes from several well known rug hookers and began to regularly attend schools and workshops to further hone her skills.
