Rug Hooking School

Green Mountain Rug School 2017

By Dawna Matthew

Several of our members travelled down to Vermont to attend this year’s Green Mountain Rug School. The school ran two sessions, June 17 – 20 and June 21 – 24 and was held at the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Montpelier. Seven classes were offered in each session so there was something to tempt everyone. Plus Nancy Blood, artist in residence, was available to help anyone with a question or needing advice.

Mary, Ti and I were in Davey DeGraff’s class, “A Painterly Approach to Depth and Colour”. I have long admired Davey’s work so it was wonderful to not only see it up close but to learn how she achieves the overall effect using texture and colour. Not that my project will look as beautiful as her rugs!!!

Next year’s classes are already posted at: https://greenmountainhookedrugs.com/
