OHCG Fall School 2017

Teacher and Class Information

Hook a Doodle Bag—Wendie Scott Davis

What a fun way to use up your worms! Design a simple square or rectangle with doodles, and turn it into a bag to hold your hooking supplies—or whatever you want. Wendie will show you how to add a zipper and a lining. Bring your worms—any size—any colour —and get ready to create the first of many bags to come.

OPEN CLASS—Marjorie Duizer

In this open class you are welcome to work on a new project or bring a project that you are having problems with. An open class is perfect for picking up tips about projects that other students are working on. 
Before the class you will be asked to let Marjorie know what you will be working on, so that she can be prepared.

Elements of Design—Karen Kaiser

Theme class for 2018 OHCG Annual Conference Karen will teach drawing and design techniques specifically for the art of rug hooking. Learn the steps necessary to apply your design to backing and what is needed to make it hookable. You will design a rug on paper and put it on your backing. By the end of the weekend you will have all the tools you need to design a rug....perhaps one based on the theme of the 2018 Annual. (unknown at time of print) (NOTE: In order to enter your rug into the theme display at the Annual, it must be an original design.)

The Magic of the Swatch—Marie Miller

Want your rug to get attention? Then put the values of a swatch in it somewhere. It will add sparkle, light and interest to your piece… just like magic! In this class Marie will guide you through using swatches in all kinds of rugs. Swatches aren't just for fine shading anymore.

Rookie Hooking—Iris Simpson

This course designed for the absolute beginner in rug hooking or for those who wish to review and renew rug hooking techniques. The course content will include rug hooking technique, tools of the trade, materials, design, colour, dyeing, finishing and rug hooking resources.
