Join us for our Next Event!
Presented in conjunction with the Textile Museum of Canada’s 40th anniversary, Home Economics: 150 Years of Canadian Hooked Rugs explores the unique stories and histories that have informed hooked rugs in Canada, the highly recognizable forms of folk art with roots in 19th-century North America. Featuring over 100 hooked rugs from the Museum's rich archive of international material culture, the exhibition represents generations of artisanal entrepreneurship, women’s domestic and collective work, as well as rural development in Canada.
Useful AND beautiful, these rugs are not to be missed. Join us this coming Saturday!
