Saturday Programs at Powhatan Historic State Park and Hooked Rugs Workshop

Hooked Rugs Workshop
March 1 9 am – 4 pm
Registration Fee: $20
Ever wonder what our ancestors did with old clothing before the Salvation Army existed? Why, they recycled the fabric into many things! This workshop teaches participants the art of Locker Hooking: an old craft using scrap fabric to make beautiful rugs, placemats, chair seat covers, hand bags and more. Participants will learn how to design patterns on canvas, cut the fabric, and use the locker hook and yarn to create mats of all styles. Please bring a sack lunch. For more information, or to register, contact the park at 870-878-6765 or email powhatan@arkansas.com.
