Get hooked at sea! 

Come sail away on this rug-hooking getaway, hosted by 207 Creatives, a collaborative group of esteemed rug hookers who joined forces to create this one-of-a-kind rug hooking retreat off the Coast of Maine.  Join us for an inspiring rug hooking/fiber art class by accomplished fiber artist, author, and hooker, Susan L. Feller of Artwools. We will be studying design, alternative hooking materials and techniques, and more all inspired by our experience and environment aboard ship off the coast of Maine. This instruction will result in the creation of multiple small pieces/vignettes as a remembrance of our trip. Traditional rug hooking is a heritage craft originating in northern New England and the Canadian maritimes in the 19th century. Our forebears cut strips from wool clothing and other found fabrics and pulled loops through burlap foundation to create a Berber texture, founding an original folk art that has evolved in to both craft and fine art today. For this class we will be using modern linen foundation and a variety of materials, including 100% wool, which will be provided. All materials except your personal hook and scissors will be included and you can meet your fellow sailors and ask all your questions before the trip by joining our private “Get Hooked at Sea” Facebook group. Class suitable for novices as well as experienced hookers – come one and all!
