Rug Hooking by Ellen

Image-1 (1)

I have been hooking rugs since 1999 and I am a Certified Rug Hooking Teacher and received my certification through the McGown Teachers Workshop. I love making rugs, exploring color, texture, fine shading and primitive styles. I have explored many different textiles and how to use them in rug making such as weaving, crocheting, Oxford and Russian punch needle. I dye wool, yarn and color plan.

I teach rug hooking at the Milford High school Adult Education evening class. I dye wool and color plan rugs and attend Farmers markets July through September demonstrating, selling small hooked mats and kits and my own handmade goats milk soap. I also give private lessons at my home and can color plan your rug.

I am the informal teacher at the Hopedale Community House, 43 Hope St, Hopedale, MA 01747 on Wednesdays 1 pm to 3:30 pm. The total cost is a $25 membership fee to the Community House for the months of September through June.  If interested in attending this group, please contact me at 508-478-5194 or call the Community House (508) 473-0820 or email Tara Chambers director of programming ( ) at Hopedale Community House

I am currently President of the Association of Traditional Hooked Artists (ATHA), Wachusetts Chapter at the Eight Point Sportsman Club in Sterling, Massachusetts the second Friday of the month. And attend the Northern McGown Teachers Workshop.
