Increasing Traditional Rug Hooking Skills

Note: Registration is now closed

During this 2-day workshop, participants will hook a small mat and learn about colour planning, shading and lettering. Join instructor, Elizabeth Bastin, for a review of traditional rug hooking methods and hints of the trade. There will also be time to explore the use of fibres other than wool. Your kit will include the pattern, backing and a selection of wool fabric. Bring along your hook, 14’ frame and scissors and enjoy the adventure. Those without hooks may purchase one from the instructor.


Instructor: Elizabeth Bastin
Elizabeth Bastin has almost 25 years experience rug hooking.  She is a member of numerous Rug Hooking organizations such as the Rug Hooking Guild of NS, the Heritage Rug Hooking Guild, Evening Matter's and Cathedral Matters, and the Fibre Artist's Guild of Fredericton.  In 1998 Bastin became a certified instructor through the Rug Hooking Guild of NS and has taught courses across the Maritimes.  She like to teach beginners because once they try it, they're usually 'hooked'.  She enjoys sharing her knowledge with interested persons and especially enjoys new hookers becoming engaged in the process of rug hooking.
