The McGown Teachers Workshop Schedule

The McGown Teachers Workshop Series is designed as a certification process for teachers of the craft of hook crafting.  The program allows individuals to further their knowledge and interest in the craft of tapestry rug hooking. The Series includes both lecture and instruction on improving technique; studying color theory and planning as well as dyeing techniques.

The workshops use patterns from our line of CHARCO Rug Hooking Patterns.

Honey Bee Hive is proud to sponsor of these workshops to further promote the art of rug hooking.  For more information about becoming a Certified McGown Teacher, contact us at patterns@rughook.com.
