Teacher and Class Information
Theme class for 2019 OHCG Annual Conference In this class, we will be exploring the world of birds and how to hook feathers and reflections. Pre-class we will analyze together the photo and bird you are planning to hook. This will give us our dye techniques and the type of wool to use in creating feathers. Dye formulas will be given so you can dye your own or I can dye for you. Teacher—Liz Marino (NOTE: In order to enter your rug into the theme display at the Annual, it must be an original design.)
A mosaic is a piece of art or image made from the assemblage of small pieces of coloured glass, stone, or other materials. It is often used in decorative art or as interior decoration. In this class we will adapt this art form into your rug hooking. Mosaic designs can represent geometric design, animals and birds, pictorial, or impressionistic. Some embellishments and creative stitches may also be used. You may use a commercial pattern or design your own. I will have some patterns available. Teacher—Ingrid Hieronimus
The emphasis of this rug hooking class will be hooking with wide cuts, from a # 5 to working with hand cuts. Bring your wool, textures and plaids and we will make your rug Wonderful with Wide Cuts! Teacher—Tina Cole
