Join Ali to explore the ins and outs of incorporating different fabrics and fibers into your hooking. Explore velvets, hand dyed cottons, homespun, and gauze, plus handspun yarns, roving and more!
Ali is well-known for her talents with integrating wonderful fibers and techniques in her own multi-media, 3 dimensional, hooked pieces, and other fiber art. She will share her tips, guide you through the “where and when” to use fibers and techniques, and even show you ways to manipulate your wool --- as you work on this folky and whimsical 10"x 10" floral design. Prior to class, students will be able to select from delectable color palette to personalize your own project.
This workshop will teach you how to bring more interest, diversity, and dimension to your future projects. You might never go back to “all wool” hooking again!
