In this 3-hour evening workshop you will learn to create a beautiful 30-36” single strand wool Quillie and beaded necklace.

Various color palates will be available to choose from, so you can personalize your necklace. Yvonne will contact you in advance to create your color palate.

You will learn how to tie on and tie off your necklace - secure your threads by tying on and off beads at each end to secure your necklace. We will roll strips of wool fabric in a variety of ways to get different Quillie effects and looks. Then we will stitch the Quillies in a secure way as we thread them onto the necklace and alternate gorgeous beads between the Quillies.

You will walk out of class wearing your new fiber art necklace!

Yvonne is a multi-disciplinary fibre artist whose work explores the combination of materials and processes.  A lifelong learner, her work is constantly evolving through medium, form and scale, although her love of wool, in its many forms, often shines through. Her use of texture, colour and dimension seek to draw the viewer in to encourage touch and engagement. Yvonne enjoys the challenges of combining many techniques in one piece which may include rug hooking, braiding, stitching, felting, punch needle and quilting.

Yvonne has a certificate in Fibre Art from the Haliburton School of Art and Design and is now on the teaching faculty. She is the current president of TIGHR and is an Oxford certified Punch Needle Instructor.

Yvonne is co-curating a global rug exhibition called Magnificent Bugs in Rugs to bring awareness to a new generation of rug hookers.

Yvonne lives in Erin, Ontario and shares a studio called The Mill Fibre Art at the Alton Mill Art Centre.
