Event type: All Ages
Sarah is a Maine fiber artist and rug hooker. She took her first rug hooking class in 2014 shortly after her grandmother, an incredible rug hooker, passed away. Sarah was - pun intended - hooked! Her style and technique have changed as she’s grown more comfortable with the craft. While she cherishes her grandmother’s traditional rugs, she’s made rug hooking her own. As she’s developed her own personal style, she’s come to realize how important texture is in her pieces. Join Sarah for her In the Studio Artist Talk as she shares more about how to incorporate texture into your work.
