March 16, 9:30am-3pm JBC

Learn Locker-Hooking Workshop with Kathy Krisher of Dream Weaver Fibers.

Do you  have roving that you don’t know what to do with?  Learn Locker Hooking with Kathy Krisher.  Locker hooking is a similar process as that used in rug hooking, but a bit different. When locker hooking, one pulls a yarn through a canvas to form loops that are “locked” in place with another strand of wool. Many materials can be used and Kathy will be furnishing practice materials at the workshop but we will ultimately be using roving to make a hot pad.
Charge for the workshop is $45 which includes all materials.
