  • Rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as burlap, linen, or rug warp. The loops are pulled through the backing material by using a crochet-type hook mounted in a handle (usually wood) for leverage.

Lifetime of Rug-Hooking
Lifetime of Rug-Hooking
Canada’s East Coast has a unique craft heritage that has seen generations hooking rugs during the long winter evenings in homes often far from any neighbours. Hooked mats and rugs were originally intended as functional pieces a place to wipe dirty feet at the back door, or a cover for drafty floors. But at some point aesthetics crept into this process, and those simple mats have evolved into the wonderful folk art rugs we see today. Nova Scotia’s Doris Eaton has been hooking rugs for nearly 50 years and is one of the region’s well-known rug hookers. A Lifetime of Rug-Hooking features over 80 of Doris’s rugs in spectacular detail, complete with the inspiration and materials behind their creation. With a foreword from Nova Scotia rug-hooker and artist Deanne Fitzpatrick, A Lifetime of Rug-Hooking is a marvelous visual tour through the works of an influential folk artist.

Captain Beefheart-Lick My Decals Off Baby
Captain Beefheart-Lick My Decals Off Baby
Lester Bangs reviews Lick My Decals Off Baby This article was written by Lester Bangs and first appeared in the March 1971 edition of Creem. Gazing across pop music's stale horizons, past all the cynical ineptitude, pseudo-intellectual solemnity, neurotic regression and dismal deadends for great bands, there is one figure who stands above the murk forging an art at once adventurous and human: Don Van Vliet, known to a culture he's making anachronistic as Captain Beefheart. Though there are still lots of people around who just don't read the Cap at all, who think his music is some kind of private joke or failed experiment (or as a local teen band told me, "Most of that's the kind of stuff musicians do when they're just fucking around") or merely a porridge of noise, the appearance of Trout Mask Replica last year was a real musical event, a signal that there was finally something new in the air. And even people averse to contemporary "avant-garde" music might find in Beefheart a continuation of traditions they loved and a sensibility refreshingly healthy in these days, when so many experimental artists feel compelled to shroud their innovations in manifestations of madness and destruction. Beefheart may be verbally obtuse and look like a trasher of everything "beautiful" (or euphonious) in centuries of Western musical tradition, but what he's really doing, along with people like Cecil Taylor and Albert Ayler and the early Velvet Underground and the Tony Williams Lifetime, is creating a whole new musical vocabulary out of the ashes and dead air left by a crumbling empire of exhausted styles. Instead of destroying, Cap is taking forms with no seeming mileage left and reworking them into prophesies of tomorrow which will be as far-reaching for rock and the new free post-idiomatic music as Ornette Coleman's radical divergence was for jazz a decade ago. The comparison with Coleman is apt on more than one level: both ushered in new decades with conceptions of ensemble improvisation so unheard of as to raise wide controversy; both have concerned their music with the rising spirit of man, the unforced compassion and insight that led Coleman to write songs like "Lonely Woman" and "Beauty is a Rare Thing," Beefheart to "Frownland" and "I Love You, You Big Dummy"; and most significantly, no matter how far out both have gotten, the primitive American blues heritage has always been implicit in everything they've done. The essential cry of joy/anguish that courses through Coleman's plaintive birdlike squawks is merely genius echoing the earliest changing moans in an age of atonality and distortion. And the more you listen to it, the more you realize that for all the rambunctious waywardness of Beefheart's woolly excursions, the seeming cacophony always swings as surely as the finest in the jazz and rock traditions it draws on. The rhythms may be shifting a lot, and the players all jutting off at squiggly angles, but that heartbeat always rocks on as surely as an old up-and-down boogie. People who want to hear some music that breaks through the sound barrier without tromping on their sensibilities, who shy from Archie Shepp's black rage, from Sun Ra conducting his Arkestra through the Nova galleries like a Babylonian priest from some old Hollywood epic, from Alice Cooper's geek-feast and Iggy Stooge's torpedo microphone ("Here's your throat back/Thanks for the loan"), should find a more congenial spirit in Beefheart. Which is not to say that he's more nor less valid than any of the aforementioned, but simply that in an age of pervasive artistic negativism, we have in Cap a new-old man refusing to discard the heart and humanity and essential innocence that Western culture has at least pretended to cultivate for three thousand years and which our electrified, relativistic generation seems all too willing to scrap as irrelevant sentimental bullshit. When Cap beams: "My smile is stuck/I cannot go back to your frownland/My spirit's made up of the ocean/And the sky/And the sun and the moon/And all my eyes can see...Take my hand/And come with me/It is not too late for you/It is not too late for me...." he stands at a point of pristine enlightenment that acid can't confer. This is primal instinct rather than mutant flash, and showers its wisdom on us from the ingenuous eagerness to share what he's found, sans false pride. Because even if he has The Answer, Cap is not Mr. Natural. His humor is lusty, Rabelaisian and perennial: "Mama was flattenin' lard with her red enameled rollin' pin...." Anybody who ever dug Looney Tunes or W.C. Fields should be able to relate to that, as surely as any Luther Burbank of bush and snatch should pick up on "Sweet sweet bulbs grow/All in my lady's garden," and the whole state of mind that was the 1950s becomes surrealistically animated in lines like: "When she drives her Chevy/Sissies d

Rug Hooking
Rug hooking may be the most popular craft in Nova Scotia. It seems that the Acadians have a long history with it, and several of the other immigrants also took it up. This house museum was a Scottish family, and the attendants continue to make rugs in the tradition of that family. It was neat to see the early process. Here they are using strips of fabric, but many of the rugs used wool.
