Welcome to our workshop exploring the fiber art of locker hooking. Using a specialized hook + needle tool and a unique mesh fabric, Lindsey guides us through building wool trivets for the kitchen and dining room from scratch. Let’s start together at step one and then expand to new materials, large scale wall hangings, and even floor rugs. 

Locker hooking is a beautiful, durable craft similar in style to traditional rug hooking or punch needle, but with a hidden cord beneath the surface to “lock” all of your loops in place. This style of craft became popular 100 years ago in Great Britain and America where women would use thick wool to create rugs. Modern artists have adapted the craft to use strips of fabric as well.
