Sunday January 28, 2018  9-4PM  * Class- "Hooking from a Photograph" $25

Instructor: Brenda Ellis Sauro        

Learn how to plan a hooked rug by using a photograph as your reference. Choose your subject matter of your own creation of a person, pet or landscape. Bring two copies to class, one black & white and one color. Make sure your light source is at an angle to ensure contrast in values. Preferably an 8X10" photo works best. Using your reference photo will help you learn to see the value changes and how it relates to your color swatches. You will discover the effects of light on your subject matter, where it comes from and how it develops highlights, shadows and contrast! We will explore the color wheel and how colors work together to make a pleasing composition and balance in your rug. Learn how colors can compliment, neutralize and work together in harmony! Together we will work on executing a color plan for each students project. 

Bring a bag lunch, refreshments served and treats!
