Welcome to the Trent School of Rug Hooking
Our Mission

Trent School of Rug Hooking is offering 7 classes taught by well qualified instructors. During the week students will receive 30 hours of instruction, enjoy a well stocked Hookers' Boutique and be inspired by the rug display at Trent University. Accommodation and meals are available on campus.

Trent School of Rug Hooking is held at Trent University main campus which is located at the north end of Peterborough along the Otonabee River. All buildings on campus are smoke free.

The next School is Sunday, June 14 to Saturday, June 20, 2015. Be sure to mark the application and payment due dates on your calendar as outlined on our Registration page.

Many thanks for the excellent week ... Your thoughtfulness, dedication and detailed planning is fully appreciated by all of us.

Several newcomers were overheard saying "It's marvellous and I'm coming back!"

You create such a pleasant environment for learning and socializing.

Can only say positive comments about my first Trent – but not my last!

I feel the program was well organized from beginning to end "no loose ends anywhere".

Your school is vital to anyone wanting to develop their skills in this unique craft. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many talented people and learning from the best. As a new hooker I believe this week has provided me with the basics and motivation to continue to expand my skills. I will definitely be back next year.

It is truly wonderful to have a school that encourages Canadian teachers, methods and designs.

Could you slow down the clocks so we could fit in twice as much time - hooking, socializing, etc.
