709CR-L: Rug Hooking Landscape with Cheryl Roberts
The landscape pictured is larger than 14′ x 14′
Workshop Fee: $75
Please note that you will not finish your entire piece during the workshop. Rug hooking takes a lot of time and students will be prepared with the information they need to finish their work at home.
Students will be hooking a landscape 14” x 14” from wool strips and yarn using visual aides. The instructor will provide a mountain landscape pattern for students. The drawing will not have a lot of detail, the landscape image will “evolve” as you hook and incorporate your own nuances. Bring some yarn you think would add dimension to the landscape. Wool strips will be provided along with the linen backing. There is no additional cost for the wool strips. We will learn several rug-hooking techniques with this piece and beginners or advanced hookers are welcome!
- Cheryl Roberts
Cheryl began rug hooking in 2003 after inheriting hooking equipment from her Mother-in-Law. Her first rug was a design she drew on linen backing, a gecko. Next, she designed a rug with the image of the family dog and hooked her. By this time she had a passion for rug hooking and signed up to be a trainee at the Southeastern Pearl McGown Workshop in Asheville, NC. Cheryl is certified by the McGown Rug Hooking Guild, she loves teaching and supporting the heritage craft of rug hooking.
She received a Regional Artist Grant Award for her rug hooking in 2006 and again in 2012. Her work has been exhibited at the Country Inn Rug Hooking workshop in Ridge, N.H., Caraway Rug Hooking workshop in Asheboro, N.C., Southeastern Teachers workshop in Asheville, N.C. and in galleries in West Jefferson and Boone.
