Pam Langdon invites you on a "Mad for Maud" journey so that you can create a piece of Canadian folk art history based on the works of Maud Lewis, one of Canada's most outstanding folk artists (1903-1970). Maud's whimsical and universally appealing scenes of her life in rural Nova Scotia are alive with colour, movement and intimacy, evoking memories of our happy childhoods. Learn about the beauty of Maud's work and highlights of her exceptional life. Discover rug hooking techniques that capture the charm of Maud's art.
