TEACHER:                 Liz Young. Liz was born in England and recently moved to Nova Scotia from Newfoundland. Liz travels the world                                          teaching rug making and specializes in introducing Portuguese Rug Making called Arraiolos. Liz is well versed in all                                        aspects of rug hooking.

WORKSHOP:            In this exciting workshop we will create an amazing design from photographs of sunsets and atmospherics, hooking                                    with a variety of wool strips, yarns and fun fibres. Participants will also have the choice to reproduce the sunset                                            pattern that is pictured above or design their own with Liz’s help. This workshop is about design, colour selection and                                  hooking with various materials. Please bring whatever you like from your stash and any photo’s you have. Texture,                                      rich colour and generous use of specialty fibres will be the mainstay of this class working in the style of Deanne                                            Fitzpatrick. We will be very loosey goosey in this free style of hooking that will bring out the artist in you.

MATERIALS:            Bring the backing of your choice or use the rough burlap in Liz’s kit. Also bring frame, hook, scissors, fine sharpie, pen                                  and pencil, notebook and/or paper and camera.
