Rug Hooking with Fiber Artist Nancy Parcel

Fiber artist Nancy Parcels shared her tips on dyeing wool and tricks on rug hooking during a workshop I attended together with other members of the Brandywine Hooking Guild
Using  thinly cut woven ,slightly felted , wool  strips or worms -as we call them- which are  pulled through a base,  like burlap ,linen or monk cloth  is accomplished using a tool that resembles a crochet hook. Its fun and easy to do and a very varied medium to accomplish magnificent art pieces which can be  as beautiful as a painting
