In locker-hooking, loops of fabric, yarn or wool are pulled through the open weave of a canvas and held in place by a hidden string that is pulled through the loops. One tool is used for both pulling loops through and pulling the locking yarn behind.
Locker hooking is done on a regularly spaced canvas; any design in a grid can be done in locker-hooking.
For this class students will learn:
How to prepare the canvass for their selected project size
How to transfer a pattern onto the canvas
How to select the best recycled materials for colours
How to cut or tear their selected materials for making their project
How to whip stitch their selected project
How to locker hook their project, how to tie on locker strings, how to hide the tails in their project upon finishing their project.
