TEACHER:    Suzanne Bailly is a retired school teacher and adult/community educator who discovered hooking a few years ago. She has tried      traditional styles – not fine shading ! During Covid Suzanne discovered Winnie Glavine of Rug Hooking Workshops of Newfoundland on Zoom and became fascinated with the freedom of hooking on non traditional foundations. She has permission from Winnie to teach others this interesting experience.


WORKSHOP: To hook a design on a wire mesh basket. You will be experimenting with a rigid surface foundation. The basket will be provided as will some wool worms, etc. Suggested designs are funky fish/flowers or birdhouses. Participants may find inspiration for simple designs by searching the internet for free colouring pages and come prepared to have fun exploring a non-traditional form of hooking.
