Dating back to the 19th century rug hooking has been a popular way to create beautiful rugs using wool strips. This updated version uses a punch method with the same results as traditional hooking. Students will make a small project while learning to use the Oxford rug punch tool, which will be supplied for use in class along with a 10" hoop.

About the instructor: Bonnie Lundorff owns the Willow Wood Market, a quiltshop and wool studio and has been sharing her love of fiber arts for 20 years. She teaches wool appliqué, quilting, needle felting, and rug making at fiber arts events, her store and throughout the upper Midwest. She designs simple-to-make projects for her students and customers. One of her designs was recently published in a nationally known fiber arts magazine, Wool Works. Bonnie lives in the woods south of Bemidji with her husband Tim and a cranky little 16-year-old dog.
