Hello my subscribers!

I wanted to let you know in case you are sitting on the fence, we are nearing the deadline for signing up to my lifetime class on color.

Class started on April 1st but I'm extending the deadline to the 15th.

I've included a video below to explain to you how I teach online and a why I think a lifetime class is important to support you in your colour discoveries.

This will be unlike any online class you've taken or I've given before.

We will be using my book The Colour Lab as a textbook.

If you found my book daunting or overwhelming this class is set up to break it all down, (the confusion, the mystery, the WTF?).  I'll be there to help you through, answer questions and support you. My goal is to remove this dark night of your soul and show you the dawning of a new colour day in your hooking life.

The know how is all there waiting to be unlocked just like your artistic potential!

If you do the course work I guarantee it will change your outlook, your creativity and your confidence as you work on your projects. Instead of being glad you've learned one thing at rug camp you will overjoyed at the learning dozens of things about colour, all at your own pace and in your pjs no less.

You don't need to show up online anywhere at a specific time, this class is made to suit your lifestyle. There is no pressure to do or say anything in class though you will benefit more by participating because I can see you and pay attention to you.

Have you been waiting all your hooking life to know more about our only tool, colour? Today is your day.

Take this astounding offer I'm making available and throw your colour wheel into the ring! We are waiting in class for you.

If you feel a little shy you might get a friend to join us too. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better and helping you gain colour courage and confidence.

This class costs only $200 USD for a lifetime of access. By the way, I feel I must explain this USD fee because my fellow Canadians have asked questions about it. Although I'm a Canadian the platform I use is based in the US and there are fairly sizeable yearly fees for using it which I must pay for in USD. A lifetime class means I 've got a lot of years ahead of me to continue to support this platform and you in your study of colour. Thank you for being so understanding.

Cedar Point was hooked in stripes from bottom to top.

If It Isn’t One Thing It's Another!

This incredibly defeatist view of living is also a fun color rule for a rug hooking project.

In this color fun class we will look at the art of the stripe through the lens of value, temperature and contrast. 

A long narrow band or strip, typically of the same width throughout its length, differing in color or texture from the surface on either side of it. If a stripe isn’t one thing its another, right? This simple idea can transform your work. Our cut wool is custom built to stripe.

What happens when we draw straight lines through a design?

When every row of strips becomes an invitation to change colors in a grand or quiet way?

Thin stripes, thick stripes, curved and straight stripes. 

What if we choose to do our hooking in rows, like a printer prints?

What if we lay narrow stripes of similar value but differing temperatures and hues side by side?

We can line, band, strip, belt, bar, streak, vein, flash and blaze with our stripes.

And create glimmer, shine, gleam, glamour, opalescence, magic, charm and excitement with color.

Students should have imagination and be comfortable on the brink of what’s possible.

We will work 4 ways to stripe for interesting and amazing effects in your future rugs.

You can see my pin board , Stripes 2018 on Pinterest as I develop our approach and ideas for this class. I add to it weekly.

Class will be held August 11 & 12, 2018,  9:30 until 4  Holiday Inn Biltmore West , 435 Smokey Park Hwy., Asheville, NC 28806

Catered lunch is included. Cost is 365.00  for the class. Accommodations are not included.

Write me if you are coming! I'll send you an invoice
