Ready for a vacation and yet don’t want to travel too far? Think learning about rughooking would be fun too? Canada is a great destination for many New Englanders and those in Northern NY. Loyalist College in Belleville, Ontario is a great setting for both of these goals. The Summer Arts Program includes three different sessions with rug hooking artists, of course I would recommend July 16-20 with me! See the full catalog here Summer Arts 2012 Loyalist College, Belleville, ON Registration begins April 13.
When there is not too much time to hook… but you need to record a memory, make a 5 inch square. The following are vignettes of three great destinations where I have taught this summer.
The Cambria Pines Rug Hooking Schoolwas site of my Pacific Ocean experience. Thanks to Gene Shepherd this East Coaster has stepped into the cold, Pacific.
Central Michigan is bordered on the left by Lake Michigan, there are giant sand dunes on the coast and inland they are covered with trees and grasses, hidden monsters. This scene was during the Manistee Rug Hooking School in late June.
While teaching at Loyalist College in Belleville, Ontario I travelled to Prince Edward County several times. One visit caught their technique of stacking the square bales of hay into small pyramids prior to pick up. Went back three days later and the field was empty. Goes to show you, carry your camera and a journal to catch memories.
