Artisans in Action: Rug Hooking Pop-Up Sale & Demo Oct.7th

Join us on October 7th at the Avon River Heritage Museum in Newport Landing from noon until 4pm for a pop-up sale and demonstration led by Cheticamp rug hooker and visual artist, Sandra Aucoin. Try your hand at hooking with yarn by contributing to our Full Circle themed rug.

Sandra Aucoin has been sketching, painting and rug hooking for as long as she can remember. She is a self-taught artist who comes from a long line of Cheticamp rug hookers. Sandra will also share her family’s traditional Acadian meat pie recipe, which will be served in the Lydia & Sally Café and available to take home.
