Parris House Wool Works is a fiber art studio in the National Historic District of Paris Hill, Maine in the 200+ year old Parris House.  It is a haven for all things North American rug hooking, hosting a monthly “hook-in” from 10 am to 4 pm every second Saturday of the month at 546 Paris Hill Road, Paris, Maine.

As conditions allow, we plan to open our doors for extended arts and homesteading retreats, featuring teachers from around the region and offering rest, relaxation, and heritage skills education in our beautiful village.
