There were numerous 'in progress' rugs so I'll try to identify those were in each of the teachers' classes. That said.... sometimes the area gets crowded around rugs so then it requires me to move from one section (teacher) to another section so my photos may not be in order. Which means I'll just try to identify the teacher's strengths she offers to identify her students.
It was tough determining Lucille's and Kris' students rugs unless I saw them being hooked in the class. Here is a little info on each of the teachers which was provided in the registration packet to assist people in choosing a teacher.
"A history Buff and long time antique collection, Lucille incorporates folk art and Americana images into many of her designs. Using plaids, checks, tweeds and herringbones, over-dyed and as is, she works to achieve soft and mellow colorations that have the look of being old but not worn. Her goal is to create a unique wide-cut hooked rug what is aesthetically pleasing to hand down to the next generation."
"Join Kris to explore soft colors, subtle value changes and beautiful textures. Kris has to recent publications The Grand Finale and Introduction to Rug Hooking. She offers a wide selection of patterns designed by her and other featured artists.
In her first career Diane was an art teacher and is an accredited McGowan teacher. She never stops moving and leads her students to beautifully crafted colorful rugs. She is comfortable working with all types of patterns and offers "tweaks" that will set your rug apart from the rest." I can definitely attest to that! My Shadow girl was hooked in her class and she wouldn't rest until Shadow's eye was spot on!
MARRAKESH EXPRESS, taking inspiration from Moroccan Boucherouite rugs Jen has developed simple tribal motifs that can be intentionally asymmetrical and perfectly imperfect. Jen is a master of improv hooking using The Matrix Method. She has been teaching 10 years in Canada, the US and England.
The following rugs were either in Lucille's or Kris' class. Enjoy the throw down.
In case you're wondering, the next two rugs below had a lot hooked before coming to camp and hooked by Pam Brune.
Welll, okay, I love this lion too but am NOT going to hook it in a narrow cut. This was being hooked in Diane's class.
There were rugs in progress which I didn't get a chance to photo.. So if any of you readers were at Cape May last week and want to send me a photo of your rug I'd be happy to post it.
Hope you enjoyed the show. Yeah..... didn't post a picture of mine yet, as I want to get a little more hooked on it.
