About the Class- Beginners are welcome in this class

"Expression Through Abstract Rug Hooking" is the first step in developing a personal visual language. Whether creating a narrative or non-representative rug, wide-cut rug hooking is a process that encourages abstraction through the nature of the fabric medium. This course will explore how to use abstraction as a means to more expressive artwork. We will discuss the formal elements of design and design principles with an emphasis on color, texture, and contrast. With these newly developed skills, students will design and begin a rug centered around their own personal style and narrative.


About Hayley Perry
Warren, Rhode Island

Hayley has been making and designing rugs since elementary school thanks to her familial bond to the craft.  After earning her graduate degree in painting in 2011, Hayley developed Loop by Loop Studio, a rug hooking business specializing in contemporary wide cut designs, taking after her mother, Sharon Perry and her aunt, Deanne Fitzpatrick.

More recently, rug making has become a true artistic expression once Hayley started to delve into her own personal narrative.  She has shown her hooked rugs and painting in galleries all over the United States.  Hayley has been granted multiple artist residencies and has written articles for Rug Hooking Magazine and Wool Works magazine.  Hayley has a passion for teaching and sharing art and has taught many classes all over New England in order to share this wonderful craft with others.
