During this workshop Jenni Stuart-Anderson will demonstrate the traditional techniques of hooking and progging strips of fabric through hessian backing to make rugs. You may start a progged project to finish at home which only requires a simple tool and can be worked on knee or table, giving a shaggy, cut pile. There will be an opportunity to try hooking with a hand hook and with a speed hook making a series of loops through hessian, stretched on a frame. More pictorial detail can be achieved with this technique.
