Anne Cox – Celebrate Spring: Designing a Spring Rug

Celebrating Spring

The goal of this class is to have participants design and create their own 18”x18”small rugs based on the idea of “Spring,” since in mid-May we should be firmly in the Spring season and looking towards Summer even. The class will include slide shows of art that invokes “Spring” and a presentation of the design process I use in the rugs I make. During the three days of the class I hope participants will tap into their own creativity, and enjoy hooking their own designs.

The rugs below are recent works by Anne,  they are much larger than the 18×18″ rug you’ll be designing.  You can click on a thumbnail to look at Anne’s work more closely.

Students should bring:

30” square of backing (unmarked)
Pencil and paper
Sharpie
Frame
Hook
Wool (thinking about Spring) in color selection
Cutter if they want to bring their own. I will bring mine, which is a Townsend Beeline with a #7 head, which is the size I am recommending for this exercise.
Students will design and hook an 18”x18” rug.
