Wheaten Woolens is a warm cozy studio that specializes in the Folk Art of Primitive Rug Hooking. It is in a historic, 1860 limestone barn, in Davenport, Iowa. The original stone farm-house has also been restored and decorated in primitive antiques by the owners who have lived there for 30 years.
The barn is well stocked with textured wools, patterns and rug hooking supplies to create unique, one of a kind hooked rugs.
The studio offers classes for those interested in learning or furthering their knowledge in the art of hooking primitive rugs.
Check Monthly Hooking Days for upcoming classes and hours. I am also available evenings and weekends for appointments. I live on the property and can easily meet your needs.
Directions: The studio is close to I-80. Take the 280 exit and get off at Locust Street. I am 6 blocks from the Putnam Museum and I-Max Theater. The Figge Art Museum and river boat gambling are 10 minutes away in downtown Davenport.
