Laura Pierce – Rug Hooking
Laura is a fourth generation rug hooker, growing up with rugs made by her mother, Emma Webber. Laura took up the hook in 1996 when a new ATHA chapter started up in Sonoma County. Since then, six of her rugs have been selected for Rug Hooking Magazine’s Celebration of Hooked Rugs; ‘Emmy’, the little girl blowing bubbles, is her most famous. Primarily a wide-cut artist, Laura has a broad appreciation for the Art, Folk Art and Craft of Rug Hooking.
Laura offers Rug Hooking instruction at her studio in Sonoma County, and at rug camps and workshops around the country. She is known for teaching Portraits, Animals, Landscapes and Reflections. She blogs frequently at ‘Laura’s Loop’ www.laurawp.wordpress.com.
