The Ontario Hooking Craft Guild was established in 1966 to promote the art and craft of rug hooking across the communities of Ontario. We currently have a membership of over 1000 ï¬bre artists supported by 80 certiï¬ed teachers. The OHCG operates a yearly school for its members, offers workshops for Branches and publishes a quarterly newsletter, in glossy magazine format (36-40 pages). Join an international network of approximately 1,000 textile artists who share their enthusiasm and experience for the art of traditional rug hooking.
The OHCG has over 60 branches, throughout Ontario and into QuÃ©bec. One of these branches is the new Independent Members' branch.
