“Fragments” 

Class Taught by Carol Weatherman
www.thesampling.net


Definition of a Fragment: Patterns are manageable size to hook; so, a full understanding of finishing a piece can be achieved in class. 

My inspiration came from an early hooked piece I purchased. It was cut to a smaller size; most likely this fragment was the only salvageable section.

primitive style is not easy to achieve; unless your textiles have been aged in a matter of believability . Each Student will have available aged textiles for their use.
Wool and other textiles will be used. Early pieces contained varied textiles (use what you had) for there were no wool stores for rug hooking in the 1800’s.
Burlap is used for a base. This is not a messy burlap. Your piece will be light weight just like an early rug.

Instructions will be given on hooking techniques, tricks on wearing fibers and finishing (no binding, this is an option though). 

The result will be a finished piece with the provenance of the 19th century. The students can apply these lessons for future projects. 

The feel of a piece is very light weight, fibers are worn, and colors are aged; this is hard to capture in a photo.

This is the first year for the “Fragment” class to be taught. Therefore, a limited number of patterns are available now. I am working on additional patterns. As the pieces are completed the pattern will be placed under this section for your choosing.

Summary: An unconventional class has many surprises! It will be a fun lesson and time passes quickly.
