LYNN ROTH, Rocky Mountain House, Alberta
‘Primitive and Wide Cuts’
This class will explore the differences and similarities between primitive, folk art, and wide cut styles of hooking. We will be using strips from #5 cut to hand cut width out of wool,cotton,or synthetic fabrics or yarns.We will also devote some time to playing with pattern design; however, students should come with a pattern ready to work on. This class will be “wide” enough to accommodate all who want to work with big strips in any way they desire, from primitive to sophisticated. All levels of hookers are welcome.
Lynn fell in love with the hooked rugs displayed at the Edmonton Klondike Days bench show in the early 90’s.That led her to the Edmonton Handicraft Guild, and their encouraging members. She found this craft so addictive that she had to start something in Rocky Mountain House or move to Edmonton. That also meant that she needed training which led her to become a McGown certified teacher. She has been teaching/coaching rug hooking in Rocky since 2000 and has taught workshops in Edmonton, Summerland, and at Prairie Harvest.
