Painting & Rug Hooking Collide

Participants will have the opportunity to take a pattern based on Downtown Fredericton and paint the background prior to hooking the foreground. 

Although the techniques are not complicated, the instructor will guide you through various ways in which to layer a mat, and also to ground the focus of the mat. 

Mary Grant
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.

Having a Masters in Industrial and Vocational Education has also been a great asset to imparting her knowledge to others. 

Mary especially enjoys creating three dimensional mats by using techniques from the early settlers of Waldoboro Maine. 

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

Mary has taught beginner courses, and more advanced shading and sculpted rug hooking locally and in the Atlantic Provinces. 

She has demonstrated her work at the Fredericton Library and Fredericton Region Museum, giving visitors of all ages an opportunity try their hand at this traditional craft.
