Ellsworth -

ELLSWORTH, Maine — Woodlawn is pleased to offer a Rug Hooking Workshop from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.  Oct. 20, 27, Nov. 3 and 10, at the museum.

Al Jenkins, owner of Wool n’ Ewe, will give a hands-on beginner workshop to teach the wonderful art of rug hooking using an 8 x 13 inch mat. Participants will learn various techniques as they hook a saltbox house with an apple tree and a short fence with sky and grass background surrounded by an irregular border. The cost to attend the workshop is $150 for Woodlawn’s members and $160 for non-members and includes a simple frame, hook, precut wool, scissors and binder tape. Participants are asked to supply a spool of button or carpet thread and a heavy needle to bind the mat. As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling Woodlawn at 667-8671. There is an Oct. 13 deadline to register to allow time to order the materials.
