Intro to Contemporary Latch Hook Workshop

Lead by Heidi Gustad

Forget about those latch hooking kits you had as a kid! Learn the mechanics of latch hook, a craft that originated as a rug making technique that has evolved into a beginner-friendly textile art. Rather than use this skill to make a bath mat featuring a clown face, learn how to intuitively and meditatively design your projects to create a stunning & contemporary wall hanging. Project planning, yarn processing, and basic finishing will be covered in this introductory workshop. 

This workshop comes with a kit including everything you need to get your own modern latch hooking off the ground: rug canvas, a latch hooking tool, yarn, and graph paper. 

Workshop includes:
2 hours of Instruction by Heidi Gustad of Hands Occupied
9x9 Rug Canvas
Latch Hook Tool
Graph Paper


3 person minimum, 8 person maximum.
