Cruisers class #1 Heart of the Caribbean
THE HEART OF THE CARIBBEAN
Instructor: LOREE LENNOX
This little gem uses pieces of everything hookable and some things you didn’t think were! Join the fun and create a memory of your trip. Whether you’re strolling on the beaches, away on a special excursion for the day or just shopping at the market, you can pick up little memory treasurers and incorporate them into your heart.
Each one is guaranteed to be unique. The sample shown is similar to the base you will hook, this one is showing just some of the fun embellishing you will do, but you will be using your found treasures as you visit the ports! We will help you with ideas to look for in the class since this is the first class offered. Loree will be available, during regular Hooking times, to help you work on your piece if needed through out the week.
The wide wool strips work up fast. We provide a collection of neutral wools and other materials for you to choose from and you will draw your pattern on the linen provided using one of the fun heart shape. We will have wide shank hooks available for use that day, but if you own one please bring it with you.
Let’s use our imagination....jewelry, shells, beach glass, driftwood, local market finds like beads, doilies, yarns, feathers, bottle caps or coasters from a favorite bar you stopped in, go wild!! look for any and all unique fibers and trinkets.
Please feel free to bring anything with you to incorporate into your personal vacation heart. Loree will help you with designing your own unique vacation souvenir that is nothing like the typical T shirts or shot glasses!
Because this is a memory piece about the trip. We would like everyone to bring a piece of wool or some yarn or what ever to share with everyone in the class, To hook into their piece! We ask that you keep it in the neutrals from white to beige to tan or very pale colors to blend in. You only need to bring a piece that’s around 10x18 in or so or a hand full of roving or yarn that you spun maybe, or just pretty ribbon, nylons, velvet, dig in your stash! There will be 12 people in the class and you only need a strip or two for each or a clump of what ever. have fun with it!! Bring anything that you can swap to remember each other as you hook your memory heart! Even if it’s only one or two strips! We will document each piece and who brought it to help you remember your fellow classroom cruisers!
This is a great opportunity to experiment with wide strips, funky fiber and monochromatic color.
