Have you tried your hand at rug hooking and want to take this art form to the next level? Then this class is for you! Begin with examining your own sense of design, exploring a multitude of ideas, and then focusing on the things that bring you pleasure. Students will design their own patterns, while thinking about questions like does symmetry speak to you? What colors do you love? What makes a good design? Students may even dye their own colors, and learn techniques to make their rugs even more special. Other formats for rug hooking can be explored, such as bags, purses, wall hangings, cushions, and even upholstery for a stool or chair. Like the beginning Interlace classes, this 6-week workshop will progress sequentially. Students will study what other rug artists are making, and brainstorm and problem solve together. The class proposes to be both an exploration of what one can do with rug hooking, and a way to develop a clearer understanding of what pleases you as you develop your creative ideas. **See supply list of items to bring to class**
