This is an open class, with students bringing a new or current piece they are working on. I love combining different techniques and fibers along with regular hooking to create special effects. I also ask students to bring a blank piece of linen to fit their frame and a handful of worms that they use to work up a “sampler” of the different techniques that I teach through out the workshop. My hope is to inspire and encourage students to try something new.
