Step out of the box and see what you can create with a winter palette of colour, subtle values, a variety of textures, fabrics, yarns and creative stitches. We will explore the ” fabulous 13 ” creative stitches and apply a study of line, value and texture to your unique design ,as well as look at how these techniques can be applied to traditional hooked patterns suiting modern decor.
No previous experience in alternate techniques is necessary but an intermediate mastery of hooking skills is needed. Experienced students will learn to apply what they know in new ways.
Individual patterns will be available for purchase but those wishing to design their own may do so under guidelines and instructor approval in order to maximize the learning experience.
Check your stash and let’s make Winter Magic with techniques ” beyond hooking”.
