‘Locker Hooking’ workshop offers instruction in durable, useful crafting technique


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Residents who would like to learn how to use the “locker hooking” technique to make one-of-a-kind items for use in the home or for decoration are invited to attend the “Locker Hooking” Workshop Tuesday from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service.

The workshop will focus on the locker hooking technique, which is similar to latch hooking, rug punch, needlepoint and even crocheting, but offers an even faster, easier, more versatile and less expensive method for creating craft items.

The Oklahoma County Oklahoma Home and Community Education organization is sponsoring the workshop as one of its continuing education programs.

 Everyone in the class will get their own locker hooking implement to take home with them and should be able to make a trivet to use in their kitchen as well.

 Residents who are interested in participating in the workshop can call the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service at 713-1125 for information about registering.
