July 19-21. Rug hooking by hand is a magical, sensuous transformation of fibre and textiles that requires us to value our resources. Many practitioners have hooked with reused textiles, and we will too — with a difference. Beginning with a grounding technique and the easiest materials, we will progress to exploring a variety of textiles and learn variations on the basic technique. Our attention and time interrupt fast fashion and consumer culture. You will leave with a small unique sampler, as well as the tools, knowledge and resources to start your next project as you develop a sense of the creative potential and limits of rug hooking.

Sept 21-22. Choose a four – legged creature you would like to make ie: dog, cat, giraffe, rat, etc. One the first day we will create the wire armature and then build upon it with wool fibres to create the animal form. The second day will be full of the details… in order to make your animals come alive. Needle felting experience would be helpful but a confident beginner is welcome!
