Four-Hour Susan Feller Rug Hooking Class January 17th http://www.mountainmade.com/blog/four-hour-susan-feller-rug-hooking-class-january-17th http://www.mountainmade.com/blog/four-hour-susan-feller-rug-hooking-class-january-17th#comments Fri, 01 Jan 2010 04:00:53 +0000 Heidi Haldeen http://www.mountainmade.com/blog/?p=164 Tap into your creativity during MountainMade artist Susan Feller's Rug Hooking Class

Tap into your creativity during MountainMade artist Susan Feller's Rug Hooking Class

Join us at the MountainMade studios for a four-hour rug hooking class Sunday January 17th from 1:00-5:00 with MountainMade artist and instructor Susan Feller.

Susan has been with MountainMade from the early days, selling a product line that includes coasters, lapel pins (the focus of this class), how-to-hook kits, pillows, rugs/runners, and wall hangings. She makes her living teaching and selling her work around the country.

Susan Feller is not only an accomplished MountainMade artist with a ride range of products, she’s a great rug hooking instructor. She brings color, texture and life to her traditional craft that dates back to colonial days.

Rug hooking is a very accessible craft. A little known rug hooking fact is that some of the most renowned hookers are men; this isn’t a ladies only craft. It allows for recycling wool and other fibers that would otherwise go to waste and results in original, lasting one-of-a-kind art pieces.

Students who participate in this four-hour MountainMade studio class will have the opportunity to try their hands at proddy and needle felting as well as finishing. During the four-hour session, most students will finish more than one lapel pin and have the tools and skills they need for a larger rug-hooking project.

You can learn more about the class here. Register online and save 5% off the cost of the course!
