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.
