Locker hooking is a craft that originated with the Amish, mostly using homespun yarn, carded wool and sometimes strips of fabric  from worn out clothing, to make rugs, bags, cushions and other items.  Locker hooking involves pulling yarn through a rug canvas in loops that are then “locked” into place with a hidden strand of wool, string or fabric, using a tool that is a cross between a crochet hook and a bodkin. All materials included, please bring your own scissors.


I enjoy incorporating the stories of upcycled fabrics and yarns into my work which includes a variety of techniques. I am currently working out of a studio space at Dilkes-Hoffman Ceramic Studio, where I have the light and space to explore larger pieces. I enjoy the sharing of information with course participants and they inspire me to constantly revise my practice to incorporate new ideas and findings.
