Rose Pearlman is an artist and art teacher who focuses on textile design. For the last 8 years, rug hooking has been her primary focus. Making everyday objects out of hooked wool has its roots in tradition while providing warmth and utility to the home. Using yarn, repurposed clothes, and common hardware store fiber, she creates new ways of creating and using rugs. She has taught rug hooking workshops throughout NYC and her personal work has been featured on the blogs of Sarah K. Benning, and fashion designer Loeffler Randal, as well as Kristy Knits YouTube channel. She published tutorial projects in art/craft periodicals Making, and KOEL Magazine, and continues to show her rugs in galleries and sell her work on commission. She is currently working on a rug hooking book that will be published in Spring 2019.
