Painterly Leaves Workshop

THIS CLASS IS NOW FULL.  If you are interested in taking this class please message or email me to add you to a list for a future class. Thank you everyone for the speedy registration!

An informal workshop on the technique of hooking my painterly style leaves is  scheduled for Sunday November 4th 2018.  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 bring those along as well.  If you don’t have any suitable wool, not to worry as the studio is loaded with luscious wool.
