The Romance and History of the Hooked Rug

January 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$95

Join rugmaking historian and owner of Ribbon Candy Hooking Deanna Davis for a workshop on “The Romance and History of the Hooked Rug.”

Deanna will discuss the distinctly North American craft of rug hooking through a collection of antique and modern examples. The talk will be followed by a class where participants will hook a rug pattern based on the ‘The 1880 Flower Vase’, an extraordinary 19th century hooked rug from the Hanford-Silliman house. Learn this simple, old-time textile art while paying tribute to your favorite historic home. The lecture is free. The cost for the workshop, which includes all materials to make your own rug, is $95. To register, email ngeary@nchistory.org.
