Our teacher certification programme in traditional rug hooking provides you with the knowledge and resources to teach everything from fine shading to wide cut. You will develop the skills to create lesson plans and deliver a course – whether it’s a regularly scheduled class, a weekend workshop, or a week long school.
We have the resources to help you deliver shading instruction to students who might like to try it. You don’t have to be an expert in shading to teach but should have the overall knowledge on how to do it and be able to mentor your students in various shading techniques. Traditionally, shading was done in a fine cut piece but it is now appearing in the wider cut pieces as well.
As primitive and wide cut hooking has a large following in the rug hooking community, we offer a course on teaching wide cut hooking where you will have an opportunity to design and hook your own piece. Here, you will learn about the tricks and techniques that are incorporated in a wider cut hooked piece.
It is important that you develop course outlines and learn about how to deliver your lesson plans in a classroom setting and in a home setting environment. Each student is unique and all learn differently – some are visual learners and some are audio learners. During the teacher training process, there will be discussions on how to teach and the necessary tools required.
