Do you use whites in your hooking? Have you created a piece with whites as the feature? Whites may be utilized in all styles of hooking. 

What makes white in our world? What are tints? How does light affect a white surface? How do you prevent a white area from appearing flat, brown or grey when not desired? What is reflective color and when does it appear? What happens when surrounding colors overtake the visual? This class will focus on using whites and tints in conjunction with strong color while creating good balance with any use of colors.

You will receive homework which focuses on observation with the initial contact from Capri. You may hook an original design, a pattern or custom design by Capri, or a pattern by another designer using cuts # 2 - # 10. She will have a variety of “whites” along with a full assortment of colorful wool and fibers.
