The Ontario Hooking Craft Guild (OHCG) has teachers across Ontario


Are you a brand new rug hooker looking to create your first masterpiece?


Are you an experienced rug hooker looking to stretch yourself with a new project?


Either way, you will benefit from the individual instruction you receive from an OHCG certified teacher. Learning in a group setting with people who share your passion is always an amazing experience.


Many of our gifted teachers offer a variety of classes in their homes or community centres, or teach in workshops and schools across Ontario and North America. Visit the listings below to find our teachers’ contact information, as well as several individual bios. There will probably be someone close to where you are.


Also, please visit the OHCG School page to learn more about the 4-day annual school held in Ancaster, Ontario each fall at beautiful Mount St. Mary Retreat.
