The Miramichi Rug Hookers & the Richibucto Rug Hookers joined together today in a workshop of colour shading. We were shown how to shade a rose & the leaves, with 6 gradations of colour on each. We did it in a one day workshop in just 6 hours! Here are the photos to prove it! Beautiful work by all...
On one side of the room was a long table of Richibucto Hookers...
And on the other side of the room were the Miramichi Hookers.
There were 8 of us, I'm taking the picture & Pat & I sat at the top of the room - under the light. The day was a cold wet one with no sunshine outside at all, making the room dark.
Everyone worked very hard under the instruction of Jan, our instructor from New Hampshire.
Our smiling instructor - Jan :-)
Pat working on her yellow rose...several times over. lol
She did get caught up by the end of the class.
My beautiful blue rose...I was the only blue rose, I wanted something beautiful for my bedroom here at the cottage.
In the kitchen working behind the scene is Marsha, a Richibucto Hooker & organizer to this day. Fellow hooker Sophie suggested that Jan, who vacations in Richibucto & has for 27 years, would be great to show everyone how to shade...Marsha made it happen & had invited our group into their workshop. Thank you Marsha for all your organizing skills used to make a very productive, instructed day!
A lovely red rose...
Yes, the only blue rose.
Jan holding a yellow rose, the purple one looked great with her top though! lol
6 hours later!! Look at these beauties, it was quite the day for everyone & we all had so much fun too!
What a beautiful project to work on, we were all so surprised at how the rose looked at a distance. When you work on top of the work...you just don't see the shading!
