Traditional Rug Hooking
Learn the art of traditional rug hooking and begin your own starter project at January 19th’s Hands-On Heritage workshop led by Jane Bussom and members of the Wiregrass Rug Hookers Guild. Rug hooking is a centuries old art form with deep roots in the United States as a folk art tradition and practical decor. All materials will be provided and participants will leave with a rug hook, a frame, a starter project, and wool.

The Wiregrass Rug Hookers Guild meets at the Thomas County Public Library downtown every Monday afternoon. All are welcome to attend their work sessions to learn more about the craft and to practice your skills.
