Fiber Stories: An Introduction to Rug Hooking with Elizabeth Miller - Farnsworth Museum, Rockland, Maine

Four weekly sessions - March 18th - April 8th, 2024

Rug hookers have always told their stories through original designs, beginning with depictions of their North Atlantic homes and farms, animals, seafaring experiences, sea and sky, as well as creative geometrics and abstracts. This workshop is designed to teach you solid rug hooking fundamentals and techniques while giving you the creative freedom to explore your own story and aesthetic, gathering design confidence and methodology along the way.

Curated by Susan L Feller, West Virginia, for the Virginia Quilt Museum

Artists in this exhibition use rug hooking to document and explore social, emotional and personal topics.

They use a variety of materials, from traditional wool fabric to recycled plastics. Their pieces are made by pulling strips through an open weave fabric to create loops, pile, and texture.

Rug hooking is steeped in generations of resourceful, creative, and outspoken makers. These contemporary artisans work the technique’s simple repetitive motions by hand, one loop at a time.
