Using your own photos you will learn to look at the world differently in order to find inspiration for rug designs in unexpected places.  In this workshop we will go through the entire design process in-depth: from finding and editing a composition, getting your design on backing, basic rules of art, colour planning, values and shading, choosing the best yarns to work with and how to rug hook, and ideas for finishing your piece.  Students will apply what they have learned to their own 5” x 7” hooked work of art that can be based on anything from landscapes, close-ups, architecture or abstract design.
