Materials provided by the instructor: A tote bag made of linen foundation, natural dyed Navajo-Churro yarns in a prism of colors, and a sewing needle with flax thread.
Supplies provided by the student: Scissors, snacks, and reading glasses, if needed. Bev will have embroidery hoops and rug hooks available for you to borrow if you don’t have your own.
You will create a stylish bag, one loop at a time, using Bev’s innovative rug hooking technique she calls “Catch and Release”: SINK the rug hook through the linen foundation, SNAG the yarn, REEL-IN the yarn, RELEASE the yarn; repeat.
Hooking with local hand-dyed yarns from Warner Mountain Weavers, you will just go around with colorful lines, creating unique and brilliant landscapes. A hand-drawn sunset pattern is on one side of the tote bag, and an optional design - a tree of life - is penciled in on the reverse.
The tote bag is open sided for ease in hooking. When you are finished hooking, simply stitch the sides closed with the needle and thread.
Bev will be contacting students after registration. Rug hooking supplies will be available for sale.
