GENERAL INFORMATION AND POLICIES
Join in this workshop and learn to create a 10″ x 10″ rug hooked piece using a combination of regular hooking and proddy. Proddy is a sculptural hooking technique where wool stands up high on the rug and is cut by hand to create flowers, petals, leaves, etc. Create a sunflower or hydrangea composition that can be used as a pillow top or hung in a quilt frame.
- 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.
