Two workshops on the technique of hooking my painterly style leaves have been scheduled for Saturday June 24th and a rain date for Sunday June 25th 2023 and Saturday August 5th with rain date for Sunday Aug 6th. This is a one day workshop where I will demonstrate the methods I use to create unique leaves using a variety of textured and dyed wools. It is a style that is extremely creative, where you are encouraged to paint with wool. You are welcome to use your pattern or mine. If planning to hook with a wide cut, select a leaf pattern that is larger in scale. Originally I had taught this as a wide cut workshop, however I have since used this technique using a #4 cut and the results were wonderful as well, therefore, you can choose to work in whatever cut you prefer.
If you would like a small project for this workshop, I can draw a single leaf from any of my patterns. You are encouraged to bring along any wool you would like to use in your leaf. The more variety of the chosen colour, the better. Select the color that you would like to use and bring along any wool that you have in your stash that is in that colour family. Eg. Red leaf: dark red, red, orange/red, etc Textures or plaids are invaluable, so include those as well. If you don’t have any suitable wool, not to worry as the studio has a wonderful selection.
Pattern, hoop or frame, hook suitable for the cut you are using, scissors, wool (as described above), and lunch. Please note that the class is will be held outdoors under tents.
This is not a beginner class and you must have a good grasp on the fundamentals of rug hooking
