I’m signed up to go to rug hooking camp in June with
Heather Ritchie as my teacher, but I really have no idea
of what project I’d like to work on.
When I go to a workshop I like to try and take something
that I feel will be challenging for myself….rug camps are
good places to learn and stretch your creativity.
Here are a few ideas that I’m thinking of….
I like this piece above, it’s altered from a photo that I took
of Lonnie while I was walking him at the park a few years ago.
I love how the light is shining through the trees. For me,
I think this would be the challenging part of the rug and I’ve
seen one of Heather’s rugs where she has light shining from
a street lamp. (You can see that rug HERE).
The picture of the distressed butterfly house and foliage
is another option….I like how it’s a bit abstract…another
technique I’ve not explored.
I really love this altered photo of Lonnie as well, but honestly,
I think I could do a fair job of hooking this on my own.
The next two are altered photos that I’ve taken as well,
but I just don’t think they are personal enough to warrant
spending that much time on, although I do think
they are very beautiful.
How do you decide what to hook when you go to camp?
