Yvonne Iten-Scott: Hook an Agate Slice

Hook an Agate Slice Using Copper Piping

Join textile artist Yvonne Iten-Scott as she guides you through creating a unique piece of wall art or floor rug. We will first look at some colorful slices of agate stone to form an idea of these beautiful patterns in nature. Using multiple techniques such as hooking, punching, braiding, standing wool, proddy, quillies, wet felting and sculpting, you will build your piece organically on linen that is stretched on copper piping. You can bend the copper into your desired shape. You may choose to incorporate many different fibers such as wool fabric, yarns, velvet, leather, twine and  roving. You will enjoy seeing your freeform shape develop throughout this class. Your piece may be wall hung with the copper piping left in or you can remove it and finish your rug for the floor.
