International Rug Hooking Day

For many of us, rug hooking has seen us through these past couple of years.  It has been a welcome distraction and comfort while we have isolated at home. With that behind us, Bear and I are pleased to invite you to join us in celebrating International Rug Hooking day with an in person event.

Marina Dempster – Artist Bio

Marina Dempster cross-pollinates traditional craft techniques to transmute forms, materials, and limiting habits of thought and emotions. Influenced by the patterns and cycles of nature and consciousness, loop by loop, bead by bead Marina Dempster’s artworks embody our interconnection and a deep, humble and universal reckoning and movement from shame to grace, fear to love and woe to wisdom. Her sculptural work has been exhibited internationally in over a dozen public art museums.

Deborah Farquharson – Artist Bio

Deborah Farquharson is an artist living and working on her family farm in Mulmur, Ontario.

Deborah uses daily Nature walks as an access point for her creative practice. Painting, photography, wood cut, fibre art and installation are all modalities through which she makes meaning of her place in the natural world. Like her mother and grandmother before her, collaborations with Nature are both her creative outlet and grounding practice.

She has shown work at a wide range of galleries and juried art fairs in Ontario, Canada and her work is found in collections in the US and Canada.
