DeEtta Beebe’s passion is textiles and the art of Rug Hooking. An accomplished and respected rug Hooker and certified McGown teacher, she has taken her art in a unique direction. She deftly blends primitive with contemporary flair. The simplicity of her subjects contrast beautifully against the complexity of the medium in a style that is her own. She hand dyes her own wool, after perfecting her formulas for color planning her rugs. In addition she designs her own patterns. During her workshops, the goal is to take her student into “their” world of expression through their own style. Patterns, wool and instruction are available for workshops through her business, Fiddlehead Finery
Supplies students will need to bring:
A bag lunch
Rug hooking frame and hook – IF you have them
Small fabric scissors to cut wool.
