Hooked on Handwork – LIVE!
Join us and author Kathleen Eckhaus as we take a deep dive into the pages of Hooked on Handwork: Design a Rug Inspired by Fibers, Textiles, and Handcrafts.
Behind every rug there is a story… Meet author, photographer, teacher, and storyteller Kathleen Eckhaus! She delights in teaching beginning rug hookers how to make their own rugs, convincing them that once they know the basics, the sky is the limit. Hooked on Handwork reminds us all that rug hookers find inspiration everywhere, including from other fiber and textile arts and other handcrafts. Kathleen will tell us stories about some of the pieces you see in the book—stories from both beginning rug hookers and experts. Join us to hear more about the newest book from RHM!
