Seeking Rug Hooking Advice ….

A U3A rugmaking group, 20 active women in Bermagui, NSW, has taken on a very ambitious project:-

they are planning to create a 7metre wall hanging to help absorb sound in the local Surf Life Saving Club.

Here are just a few of the group of novice rugmakers with their first practice pieces.

Anja, Dawn, Sheila, Hazel, Lyn and Elizabeth (kneeling)

U3A_Rug_hooking_Group_Bermagui_NSW_Australia_Anja_Dawn_Sheila_Hazel_Lyn_ElizabethThis community arts project has begun with a local artist (86 year old Rona) painting her 7metre drawing of a Bermagui scene.  When completed the group will transfer the design to 1 metre panels of backing so that they can work on it in small groups.

They think the completed panels will have to be hung individually, with a small space between, as joined together the wall hanging would be enormously heavy and unwieldy.   The leader of the group is a self taught rug hooker, the rest have no experience with rug hooking, but between them they are coming up with some sensible solutions.

They’d welcome  any advice on their proposed project

(Besides……………… not  to attempt such a hug project in the first place!)
