Rug Hooking Woolen Folk Art

Sustainable Art and Rug Hooking  

How awesome is it to work with a material such as wool that comes from sheering the sheep only to have it grow back again after the sheering.  It's an endless amount of wool material that keep coming.  This is the essence of rug hooking with wool.  The feeling of the wool in hand while working and the finished product has a rich aesthetic quality to it.  Beautifully Natural!

Slow Movement Embraces Rug Hooking

What is the "slow Movement"?  ​In this day of FAST FAST FASTER...... it is so nice to slow down and work with our hands to create a one of a kind quality product rather than mass production.  The movement started in Europe and is fast spreading around the world.  There is a therapeutic aspect to working with ones hands to produce a work of art.  Rug hooking is slow and methodical.  The end results are breathtaking and last for generations.  Priceless!

Rug Hooking

Welcome!  In recent decades, rug hookers have been exploring new materials and new techniques. This experimentation combined with knowledge and respect for the past has allowed rug hooking to evolve and grow into an exciting and creative form of art. We are excited to be a part of this fun and social craft.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced "Hooker", everything you need to hook can be found in my ETSY shop.  Visit me HERE where I offer my patterns, wools, and supplies.
