Adding 3d to your rug hooking

Whether you are doing a Still Life, a traditional mat, or a depiction of a scene, there are a number of ways in which to add a third dimension to your rug hooking. 

Sculpting along the Waldoboro style, utilizing proddy, adding beading, shells or driftwood, or utilizing decorative stitches are all means in which a wall hanging can become three dimensional. 

Using a prepared kit, various techniques will be practiced, with time in the final session to discuss incorporation into the mat of your choice.

Mary Grant has been rug hooking for 15 years and teaching for the past five. 

She is a member of the Heritage Rug Hooking Guild and the Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia, including its Teachers Branch.

Vivid colours and careful blending of shades add to the finished result.
