Hooks and hoops will be provided for use during the class and the week in between. They will be available for purchase at the end of the course if you need them.

In the class we will discuss how to hook to acheive similar effects as Van Gogh does in the paintings.
Class fee $90 includes the pattern on Traditional LInen, Wheatfields can be done on Primitive Linen for a wide cut. Both patterns are approx. 16x22. I encourage students to bring wool from their "stash" and I will also have a selection of suitable colours available for purchase.
