What ever style or color palette you like, it is the color choices first ,that make it beautiful . Color is so powerful it is studied and used to great effect as a selling tool in advertising, and affects us on a daily basis. Many may know the colors they like but not necessarily where to place them in their rug effectively. Everyone has the ability to learn color planning with some key knowledge and simple tools. Each student will color plan a small mat as they learn key elements to hook their rug in their style, and color palate creating a beautiful rug.

This class will be taught here at my home in the space shared by my dye kitchen.

Price includes Pattern ( choice of Infinity, Kaleidoscope or Popcorn & Peanuts) snack and lunch. Class is limited to 10.

Class Supplies List: cutter, hook, scissors, frame, and any other hooking items you normally use.
