Each tiny landscape I make takes me somewhere different. In one I am in a field of flowers, in another I am in the undergrowth, in yet another I am over seeing a thousand acres. You can work small and discover big possibilities.
When I created 49 tiny landscapes over the past summer I was left with only one desire, to make more. I hung them as a seven by seven square and in them I saw that together they created a work of art, unlike any other I had created before.
We will explore working on themes and combining small works together to create larger works of art.
In this class I will hook along with you, creating as you do, and help you learn to reach a level of flow in your work so that every loop is less of a decision and more of a creative process. We will work on how to become more creative, more intuitive and responsive as you create a series of small rugs no bigger that approximately 9 by 9 inch square, or 6 by 12" rectangle. You will decide your dimensions.
Working small requires a new way of thinking about your loops, your cuts of cloth, your yarns. It is a special way of hooking that I have found has lead me to some beautiful rugs. I am inspired and excited to share the same with you.
In this workshop we will work on three to nine tiny landscape rugs. You can choose. You can work from patterns or you can create your own designs with my guided instructions.
We will explore the possibilities of yarn , cloth, and interesting materials and how to use them to create the elements of the landscape.
In this workshop we will play with the idea of how to be an artist. It will be an exploration of habit and creativity as we make tiny landscape rugs. Discover the potential in yourself to be an artist with rug hooking as you create small hooked rugs that explore the rural landscape.
