Pam Langdon invites you on a ‘Mad For Maud’ journey so that you can create a piece of Canadian folk art history based on the works of Maud Lewis, one of Canada’s most outstanding folk artists (1903-1970). Maud’s whimsical and universally appealing scenes of her life in rural Nova Scotia are alive with colour, movement and intimacy, and evoke memories of our happy childhoods. Learn about the beauty of Maud’s compelling work and highlights of her exceptional life. Discover rug hooking techniques that capture the charm of Maud’s art.
Intermediate: Must have completed a beginner class and at least one project.
There are a significant number of designs waiting to be hooked using cut wool, nylons, yarn or alternative fibres. Designs can be viewed and purchased from Highland Heart Hookery, Nova Scotia (go to www.hookarug.com) and from Barbara Lukas (go to barbaralukas.com)
Pam Langdon lives in Mill Bay on Vancouver Island and is a certified Rug Hooking Teacher (Ontario Hooking Craft Guild 2006) and a Traditional Rug Hooking Fibre Artist (St. Lawrence College, Brockville, Ontario 2015). Her work has appeared in numerous publications including Rug Hooking Magazine, and in several public exhibits (most recently the 2018 Tribute To Maud Lewis, Sauder Village, Ohio). While Pam’s penchant and enthusiasm for teaching includes courses on design composition, colour, dyeing, weathervanes, fraktur and the illusion of 3D geometrics, she has a particular interest in teaching students about the life and art of Maud Lewis and how to recreate Maud’s compelling work. Pam’s informative and interactive approach creates an enjoyable atmosphere for working, learning and success (www.pamlangdondesign.com)
