About the Event

Join the Rufus Porter Museum and Elizabeth Miller of Parris House Wool Works for a talk about traditional rug hooking, from its history here in Maine, the New England region, and in the Canadian Maritimes, to contemporary expressions of the art evolving in modern times. Elizabeth will bring examples of the art, explain basic tools, materials, and techniques used, answer all of your rug hooking questions, and offer a chance to try your hand at hooking yourself.

A limited amount of tickets will be available. Advanced tickets only. $35/pp, includes lunch.

She has taught workshops at the Squam Art Workshops in Holderness, NH; the Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village in New Gloucester, ME; Portfiver in Portland, ME; Stitchery in Portsmouth, RI; the Beekman 1802 Mercantile in Sharon Springs, NY; in other regional venues; and in her studio in Paris, ME.  She recently published a book, Seasons at the Parris House: Heritage Skills for a Contemporary Life, for Down East Press, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield.
