Skill level: Beginner
Workshop Description: Locker hooking is a hooked rug technique using roving hooked through a foundation fabric. With the loops locked on top of the foundation by a yarn tail, the finished piece is very stable and looks great on both sides. Legend has it that this technique originated in Australia and there is evidence of pieces hooked in this style in the British Isles in the 1920s. You will learn the basic hooking stitch, how to make two kinds of turns,and have a new way to use up your roving stash! Once you have mastered the basics, we will move on to additional techniques such as: diagonal stitches, alternating colors, adding short color changes and free form designs.
Students should bring: Sharp scissors, glasses if you wear them for close work, water to drink, any rovings or other fibers you want to incorporate in your work.
