Rugs of Sky, Land and Sea
Rockland — Farnsworth Art Museum will present an intermediate rug hooking workshop titled Sky, Land and Sea Saturday through Monday, Oct. 6 through 8. The class will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at the museum’s Gamble Education Center, corner of Grace and Union streets.
Colors from the sky, a meadow and the ocean will be plumbed as participants design and hook a beautiful landscape using wool material, yarn or any other fiber. Materials included to help students get started on their projects will be a Belgian linen backing, hand dyed wool material and colorful yarn. Rug hooking experience is required for this class; participants should bring their own rug hook, hooking frame and any hooking materials they wish to incorporate.
Instructor Gabrielle Wicklow designed and taught needle art for more than 20 years before discovering rug hooking. She is a member of the National Guild of Pearl McGown Hookcrafters, the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild, and the Association of Traditional Hooking Artists. The fee for this course is $300, $270 for Farnsworth members, which includes a $150 materials fee.
