115. Rug Hooking (aka Punch Needle) as a Side Hustle—Workshops, Art Kits, & a Book
Rose Pearlman is an artist, teacher, and textile designer. With a background in fine arts and a love of well designed functional objects, her creations blur the lines between art and craft and push the boundaries with non-traditional techniques and materials. Rose teaches monthly rug hooking workshops in and around her home in NYC, and also welcomes commissions for one of a kind constructions in decor and home furnishings. Her work has been featured in fiber magazines, galleries, and numerous online design sites.
In this episode, Rose discusses how she built a rug hooking (aka punch needle) side hustle by creating authentic content and collaborating with others. We discuss how she goes about planning her IG feed, why she gravitates towards teaching vs commissions, and lessons learned from selling craft kits. She also tells us about some of her new favorite apps that are helping her stay organized.
