Once again I am like a kid in a candy store hopping up and down with excitement about teaching this coming spring at the Squam Art Workshops. For a synopsis of what this impossible-to-describe-in-words arts retreat is about, click here for last year’s blog post.
This year I am teaching two hooking classes, one for beginners, and one for intermediate students – those who have hooked before, maybe taken my beginner class last year, and want to try some new things.
I am offering Modern Heirloom again to beginners. This year’s design is of a Luna moth because I saw quite a few of them at Squam last year and I think they are part of the magic that is Squam in the evening.
For those who took Modern Heirloom last year, or who have mastered the basic loop pulling technique, I am offering an intermediate class called Hook What You Love.
My example for this is the scene looking out of my office window in Maine, however, the idea is for the student to come up with her own design of something near and dear and create her own fiber art interpretation of it.
If you have never been to Squam, I can not possibly recommend it enough. You will find tranquility, joy, and an atmosphere of open creativity among the most wonderful people you could ever hope to meet. You will also be lodged in gorgeous rustic but comfy cabins along the shoreline of Squam Lake in Holderness, NH at the Rockywold Deephaven Camps. And the food is plentiful and delicious (let’s not forget the food!). This is a place to get away from everyday stresses and distractions and rediscover what is dearest to you, among people who “get it.” And, you will go home having made new friends, learned new skills, and, I guarantee it, having discovered something new about yourself.
Don’t miss this.
Happy dreaming and happy hooking! – Beth
