In this 2-part workshop, we will go through the design process from beginning to end based on your own photo of a building or location (photo not required for the first class). 
I will be sharing my approach to design, color and materials. I believe we all have the ability to create beautiful pieces that are unique to us.  I know it can sometimes be challenging and even scary to trust ourselves and our abilities to design. We are often taught to believe there is 'one' right way to do something and it is best to leave the design aspect of rug hooking to the 'real' artists. Yet we can all be artists if we are willing to try and I love helping people to tap into their inner artist and surprise themselves with what they can create ♥   

Thursdays MAY 20th and 27th, 1pm to 3pm EST (Ottawa/Toronto time)
I will send a Zoom link and details via email after purchase. 

*I will not be teaching 'how to hook' in this workshop, but rather 'how to design'.  Open to all levels of rug hookers. 

*Each session is recorded so you can rewatch or catch up if you need to miss a class.

*Materials are not provided but your will need: paper, pencil, permanent marker (eg. sharpie), ruler, hook, hoop/frame, the backing fabric of your choice, scissors, images/photos of architecture you love, a variety of wool/yarn in colours that appeal to you.  
What some previous students have said about the class: 
"Thank you SO much for this workshop!  You are the catalyst to rediscovering my creative side; as well as the gentle voice letting me know it's totally okay to do things MY way instead of trying to 'follow the rules'.
I enjoy your teaching style of sharing your knowledge versus giving me a 'how to'.
I liked the way you presented things--hearing the more technical way of getting lines and then the other pieces.  This has helped not only in design, but in all things I look at now!"  Rachel Johns 
"You had come highly recommended and I now know why.  This was my first zoom class - I’ve listened to presentations, watched videos, and attended hook-ins, but as my first into to what’s possible on zoom, I feel fortunate.  You certainly know how to work with the camera so that your teaching aids and examples are well seen, etc."  Lesley Larsen
